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 2019 we have three awesome new options for Auckland Schools!
Experience an ensemble performance visit at your school and tickets to a Kiwi Kapers concert.
A choice of mentorship plans or ensemble visits, plus tickets to a choice of Kiwi Kapers, Discovery, Unwrap or main series concert.
Receive mentorship, an ensemble visit, access to open rehearsals, tickets to a main series concert and a selection of APO GO memberships ($10 tickets to main series concerts).

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 2019, schools can select from Kiwi Kapers for primary and intermediate schools, Discovery Concert for secondary students or any of our Unwrap The Music concerts.
'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
'MAGS music students have enjoyed our partnership with APO this year. They have attended the concert, followed by the weekend workshop with your musicians and now, we've got this lovely [teaching] resource. I am looking forward to continuing this valuable partnership in 2017.' - Mount Albert Grammar School
