APO Announces Artist Change For Unwrap the Music

APO ANNOUNCES ARTIST CHANGE FOR UNWRAP THE MUSIC

Auckland Philharmonia Orchestra (APO) has announced a change to the upcoming concert Unwrap the Music: Mendelssohn’s Italian Symphony, taking place on Wednesday 27 June at Auckland Town Hall.

Unfortunately, due to illness, presenter Richard Gill will not be travelling from Australia to front the performance. Instead, New Zealand performer and broadcaster Kevin Keys will step in. Keys will present the performance, unwrapping Mendelssohn’s ‘Italian’ Symphony No.4, and conductor Hamish McKeich will join him on stage to direct the orchestra.

APO Chief Executive Barbara Glaser says, “It is a shame that Richard won’t be joining us for this concert. However, we are confident that the combined forces of Kevin Keys and Hamish McKeich will bring insight and experience to this informative and entertaining event.

“The APO has long-standing associations with Kevin and Hamish so they will both be familiar faces to our Auckland audiences.

“We wish Richard a speedy recovery and look forward to him returning later in the year.”
