APO Partnership Schools Annual programme

APOPS brings the orchestra into the classroom through educational programmes that stimulate and engage students in more than 60 schools across Auckland.

Every year the APO partners with schools to support their music programme. Students and teachers of all ages and backgrounds receive additional music mentoring from professional orchestra members, experience the APO live in concert and engage with other exciting music experiences.

In 2020 we have three awesome options for Auckland Schools!

  • APOPS Preludes - $600

    Experience an ensemble performance visit at your school and tickets to a Kiwi Kapers or Discovery concert.

  • APOPS Concerto - $900

    A choice of mentorship plans or ensemble visits, plus tickets to a choice of Kiwi Kapers, Discovery, Metlifecare Unwrap or main series concert.

  • APOPS Symphony - $2500

    A bespoke programme for your students. Receive mentorship, an ensemble visit, access to open rehearsals and tickets to a main series concert.

Kiwi Kapers
Metlifecare Unwrap The Music

APOPS schools are also entitled to bring a group of students to an APO Education Concert with bus transfers to and from the concert arranged by APO Connecting.  In 2020, schools can select from Kiwi Kapers for primary and intermediate schools, Discovery Concert for secondary students or any of our Unwrap The Music concerts.

What our schools say:

'Our students learn so much from the opportunity to work with the musicians from the APOPS programme. Hearing their compositions played and having the players provide feedback gives them real insight the practical realities of their compositions.' - APOPS School 2018
