Due to recent changes to Aotearoa New Zealand's Covid-19 Alert Level 2 (Delta) guidelines, Bay of Plenty Symphony wish to advise ticket sales for their upcoming show Northern Lights have been temporarily paused. 

Baycourt Community & Arts Centre is working closely with Bay of Plenty Symphonia on a plan to ensure Northern Lights is able to take to the Addison Theatre stage in November while adhering to the updated Alert Level 2 (Delta) restrictions. We will have more information to share with you soon. 

Presented by Bay of Plenty Symphonia

Bay of Plenty Symphonia’s final concert of the year features four Northern European composers.

The concert opens with Šàrka from My Fatherland, a set of six symphonic poems by Czech composer Smetana. It’s a vivid piece representing a legendary warrior princess.

Top New Zealand violinist, Martin Riseley, is our internationally renowned soloist in Sibelius’ Violin Concerto.  From its beautiful first note to its dramatic end, this well-loved music showcases the brilliance of the violin. 

Wagner’s evocative Forest Murmurs is from Wagner’s The Ring opera cycle.  Siegfried rests in the forest and is enchanted by the sounds of birdsong with gently swaying leaves and branches. 

The concert concludes with Shostakovich’s Symphony No.9.c Although originally intended to be a momentous work celebrating the Soviet victory over Germany, it is short, small in scale and light in tone. 

Northern Lights, performed by Tauranga’s community orchestra, is conducted by Justus Rozemond.
