TWSO Education – 'The Snowman'

Tuesday 4 August, 2015 | Hamilton Gardens Pavilion
9:30AM, 11:00AM and 1:00PM

Katie Mayes – Leader | Timothy Carpenter – Conductor

One of the important dates in our season are our regular presentations for schools. For many youngsters this is the first time they will have seen and heard a full symphony orchestra

Trust Waikato Symphony Orchestra's Education concerts for primary and intermediate students will this year be held in the Pavilion at Hamilton Gardens on Tuesday 4th August.  There will be three concerts, 9.30am, 11.00am and 1.00pm.  This year the programme will be the soundtrack from Howard Blake's The Snowman

Tim Carpenter, a young student conductor from Cambridge now studying in Auckland, will be conducting.  So, these concerts are educational for everyone involved, not only the audience

All schools coming to the event will receive a work-pack in advance to help the children learn and appreciate even more about the music and the instruments they will see and hear

Carmina Burana

Sunday 1 November, 2015, 4:00PM | Founders Theatre

Amanda Atlas - Soprano | Chalium Poppy - Baritone
Katie Mayes – Leader | Rupert D'Cruze – Conductor

The epic music cantata Carmina Burana by Carl Orff, for large orchestra, chorus and soloists, has justifiably always been a highly popular concert attraction. We've paired it with Tchaikovsky's suite from his bright and tuneful ballet The Nutcracker to make a programme which we hope will delight and inspire you

Joining us in Carmina Burana are two great vocal soloists who have sung with us before – Amanda Atlas (soprano) and Chalium Poppy (baritone)
