CONGRATULATIONS to our students who have been selected from over 150 musicians throughout the country to be members of this years’ New Zealand Secondary School’s Symphony Orchestra.

These students will participate in an intense six-day orchestral course, run by the Christchurch Itinerant Music Teachers in the second week of the April school holidays, culminating in two public performances.
This course is widely regarded as a significant training ground for young players aspiring to membership of the New Zealand Youth Orchestra and ultimately to a career as a professional musician.
