Passion and Soul with Manukau Symphony Orchestra!

Come on a musical journey beginning with the gypsy passion of Bizet’s Carmen, through Lalo’s sparkling Symphonie Espagnole, and finishing with Mendelssohn’s spiritually uplifting Fifth Symphony.

Bizet’s Carmen is perhaps the best loved of all operas. From the dark Overture to the Seguidilla through to the show stopping Toreador aria, you will be humming your favourite melodies for days to come.

We are delighted to welcome back the gifted young violinist Benedict Lim as soloist in Lalo’s Symphonie Espagnole. A star student at the Pettman National Junior Acadamy, this performance will celebrate the 10th anniversary of its founding.

Mendelsshohn’s 5th Symphony is also an commemoration; written in 1830 to mark the 300th Anniversary of the presentation of the Ausberg Confession in 1530. This was a key document in the Reformation and the history of Lutheranism. As such Mendelssohn included in the climax of the Finale the hymn Ein Feste Burg Ist Unser Gott (A Mighty Fortress Is Our God) Such a satisfying conclusion to what will be a delightful evening of music!
