Instrumental workshops help prepare for Gala Concert

Taharoto Orchestra (directed by Fleur Knowles), Westlake Girls Symphonic Band (directed by Jono Howan) and Westlake Symphony Orchestra (directed by David Squire) have been working hard preparing music for the annual showcase ‘Westlake Gala Concert’ coming up on Thursday 13 August.

Last week, Taharoto and Westlake Symphony Orchestras both enjoyed workshops with mentors from the Auckland Philharmonia Orchestra. Four APO players (representing strings, woodwind, brass and percussion sections) ran a specialised workshop, which was a fantastic opportunity for our young musicians to learn closely from the professionals.

Without the usual KBB Music Festival to compete in this year, the Westlake instrumentalists are excited to share their work in concerts coming up this term – please come and support them!
