The Kāpiti Concert Orchestra started its 2023 season with a resounding success judging by comments from the audience and especially soloist Bridget Douglas, Principal Flute of the NZSO -
"Thanks to all members of KCO for a wonderful musical experience...."
The Orchestra is now pleased to announce a second concert, "Let's Dance with KCO" which will be sure to produce the same enthusiasm and delight that will appeal to all ages, especially budding ballet dancers. They will be able to watch and listen to familiar ballet music and drift into their own world of fantasy.
The programme includes "Lord of the Dance" by Ronan Hardiman, Manuel de Falla's "Ritual Fire Dance", excerpts from Edwin Carr's "Promenade Suite", "Nutcracker Suite No 1" by Tchaikovsky and a rather unusual but beguiling "Romeo and Juliet Suite for Solo Viola and Orchestra" based on Prokofiev's ballet.
The concert will be conducted by Donald Maurice who is well known to Kāpiti audiences and will feature Sophia Acheson from the NZSO viola section as soloist.
We would like to congratulate Kāpiti Concert Orchestra for being a finalist in the 2023 Wellington Airport Regional Community Awards!!
