Update 8 Apr 2024:

The Auckland Philharmonia announces changes for its upcoming concert, The New Zealand Herald Premier Series: Totally Trumpet, on Thursday 23 May 2024.

Highly regarded Dutch-Maltese conductor, Lawrence Renes, will step in as the replacement conductor. This will be Renes’ debut with Auckland Philharmonia and will follow his return to the Melbourne Symphony Orchestra, where he is an audience favourite. He will bring his trademark passion, nuance and style to the Auckland Town Hall stage for Smetana’s spirited Overture to The Bartered Bride and Rachmaninov’s sprawling, generous Symphony No.3.

Stunning Norwegian trumpet phenomenon Tine Thing Helseth will also join the Auckland Philharmonia for the first time at The New Zealand Herald Premier Series: Totally Trumpet. The opportunity to hear Helseth play dazzling concertos by Aleksandra Pakhmutova and Penderecki, with a full-strength Auckland Philharmonia and the masterful flair of Renes, is one not to be missed.

Lawrence Renes will replace the previously advertised, Jonathon Heyward, who has withdrawn from the concert for personal reasons. The music programme has one repertoire change, Smetana’s The Bartered Bride: Overture will replace Dvořák’s Carnival Overture. The concert title is unchanged.
