This concert was due to take place on 15th July 2020 and because of change in Alert Levels due to Covid-19 was postponed to Saturday 17th October 2020, 3pm. If you are a ticket holder to the original concert your ticket/s are valid for the new concert date.
The Kapiti Concert Orchestra is delighted to present their first concert for 2020 at Te Raukura ki Kāpiti, Paraparaumu. This will be an occasion to celebrate just how far we have come from Covid -19 lockdown days, to enjoy being able to go to a concert again and to experience the wonderful new Performing Arts venue on the Kāpiti Coast.
The programme includes works by Dvor̆ák - his much loved Symphony No 9, "from the New World" as well as works by New Zealand composers - John Ritchie's "Papanui Road, Overture for Orchestra" which paints a musical picture of that well-known street in Christchurch and two works by Dorothea Franchi, one for Viola and Orchestra with soloist Sophia Acheson and another for Orchestra, Harmonica and Harp with soloists Coral Trimmer and Michelle Velvin.
