Orchestra in love!

An enthusiastic audience appreciating their last concert at All Saints.

An exuberant band of young players will brighten the winter as they open the winter series of the popular Thursdays @ Seven concerts at All Saints Church, Howick, on Thursday June 24.

And what concert theme could have more appeal than “Love”?

The love stories play out in ballet music for Romeo and Juliet, a suite from West Side Story and a concert fantasia on Verdi’s opera Rigoletto, featuring solo clarinetist Kiara Kong.

The performance is directed by inspiring conductor Antun Poljanich.

Audiences can expect to see a dazzling array of instruments filling every inch of space at the front of the church, with around 90 players involved.

Please note, this concert starts at 7.30pm and is a full evening’s programme.

From the following Thursday, concerts will continue at the traditional time of 7pm-8pm commencing with a recital by stunning Italian pianist Flavio Villani.

Admission is by donation at the door, 7.30 – 9.30pm, Thursday June 24, All Saints, Howick
