Auckalnd Philharmonia Orchestra Gathers the Clans

Auckalnd Philharmonia Orchestra Gathers the Clans

Auckland Philharmonia Orchestra (APO) invites audiences to gather the clans in honour of Qantas Presents Scottish Proms, an evening of music where orchestral conventions – and decorum – are abandoned, and where audience participation is not only allowed, it’s expected.

The 10 April concert is a showcase of all things Scottish, and features a mix of traditional tunes alongside orchestral music by composers who were beguiled either by Scotland’s culture or its stunning landscape.

Among the latter are the likes of Mendelssohn, who visited Scotland as a young man and was inspired to write some of his greatest music. The former includes such staples as ‘Scotland the Brave’, ‘Loch Lomond’ and favourite songs based on Robbie Burns’s poetry.

No concert of Scottish music is complete without a piper, and the APO is joined by the Auckland and District Pipe Band Pipe Major, Ben McLaughlin.

One of our finest sopranos, Rebecca Ryan (who hails from the Scottish outpost of Invercargill), also appears at the Aotea Centre concert. On the podium is award-winning conductor Marc Taddei.

This is a night to break out the kilt, unfurl the tartan and prepare your best rendition of ‘Auld Lang Syne’ as the APO celebrates all that is great about Scottish culture.
