Auckland Philharmonia Orchestra’s In Your Neighbourhood concert at Waiheke Island tomorrow, Saturday 18 August, will now take place at Morra Hall, Oneroa at the advertised time of 6:30pm. This differs from the previously advertised venue of Artworks Theatre, which is temporarily closed while it undertakes necessary cleaning due to a small flood at the premises overnight.
All pre-purchased tickets remain valid at the new venue, and door sales will be available.
APO Principal Oboe Bede Hanley
Soprano Madison Nonoa
J.S. Bach ‘Wedding Cantata’, BWV 202
John Harbison Snow Country
Vivaldi Oboe Concerto in F major, RV 455
Heart-warming winter melodies
Musicians from the Auckland Philharmonia Orchestra bring the joy of music a little closer to home; and what better time to celebrate these wholesome and eclectic pieces for oboe than in the heart of winter?
Principal Oboe Bede Hanley kicks off the concert with Bach’s ‘Wedding Cantata’, affectionately starting the evening on a romantic note featuring young soprano Madison Nonoa, 2017 winner of the Dame Malvina Major Emerging Artist Award.
Don’t fall too deeply though – this work is followed with John Harbison’s Snow Country, a piece that echoes the desolate Wisconsin winter in which it was composed.
The grace of the oboe is highlighted again with Vivaldi’s lively concerto before transitioning into a smoky tango with Piazzolla’s Oblivion, leaving you with just enough heat to brave the cold as this concert comes to a close.
