Big Play In

Be part of the largest orchestra of the year to play on the Auckland Town Hall stage!


The APO welcomes students from the University of Auckland School of Music, players from Auckland Youth Orchestra, as well as advanced music students currently at secondary school to join a workshop and performance at the Auckland Town Hall. Participants are seated next to APO musicians, paired one-to-one for an intense mentoring experience. The evening will conclude with a public performance.

Music is given out in advance, and all participants are expected to prepare the music to the very best of their ability.
