Presented by Opus Orchestra
Opus Orchestra welcomes Guest Conductor James Judd to this concert of epic works including ‘God Save the Queen’ (in honour of the Queen’s 70th jubilee), and Mendelssohn’s Symphony No.3 in A minor, Op.56, the ‘Scottish’, inspired by a visit to Scotland when the composer was 20. He wrote, “It is in pictures, ruins (Holyrood) and natural surroundings that I find the most music.” Queen Victoria even granted Mendelssohn royal approval to dedicate the Scottish Symphony to her.
Another highlight is the Brahms concerto for Violin and Violoncello with New Zealand Symphony Orchestra musicians as soloists; Vesa-Matti Leppänen (violin) and Andrew Joyce (violoncello).
An evening with stars celebrating stars – beautiful orchestral music performed by inspiring, brilliant musicians. Come and be uplifted and inspired.
