Auckland Town Hall

Classical music

Experience the thrill of 75 talented young musicians (ages 16-26) performing together with energy, precision and passion! Conductor, Antun Poljanich.

    Copland Fanfare for the Common Man
    Vaughan Williams The Lark Ascending (soloist: Jim Wu, violin)
    Ravel - Pavane for a Dead Princess
    Mussorgsky - Pictures at an Exhibition

Copland's Fanfare will be familiar to audiences, as it has inspired many compositions, from space shuttle missions to Superman movies. The soaring, lyrical melodies of The Lark Ascending make it a perennial favourite with audiences, and Ravel's Pavane is a masterpiece. The concert wraps up with Mussorgsky's Pictures at an Exhibition, a brilliant showpiece in the orchestral repertoire, displaying the different sections of the orchestra in the most inventive and striking manner.
