Donations welcome in the wake of a magical evening with "Poeme Heroique" held on 20th November in the Auckland Town Hall, to keep us going!
We are FOR REAL: a serious but also friendly and supportive semi-professional orchestra, with the ratio of professional to amateur players being about 50/50.
People love our programmes; we give varied and interesting opportunities to players and soloists.
We are very well organised and businesslike, and our Board comprises just a handful of "idealists" who really want this to keep on happening.
With the trading name of the "Aorangi Symphony Orchestra" ,we are a symphony orchestra with an affiliated choir "The Aorangi Singers", which has operated as the Ensemble Polymnia Trust since August 2014.
Our Musical and Artistic Director is Sarah Bisley, a New Zealander who trained and performed in Europe and North America over a period of 25 years, before returning to her home country.
