SYMPHONIC SPECTACULAR | DSO DUNEDIN SYMPHONIC ORCHESTRA | TURN UP THE MUSIC EVENT

The 17 and 18 of May 2019 marked the start of Turn Up the Music’s external engagement programme.

On 17 May a string quartet featuring Benjamin Baker, Justine Cormack, Gillian Ansell and Alexander Hersh performed compositions by Franz Schubert and Gareth Farr at Arrowtown, Shotover, and Queenstown Primary schools. Garth Farr was in attendance too, and spoke about his Mondo Rondo composition.

The following night, the string quartet performed at the launch of the Trust, at Hakitekura, Queenstown.  The set also included a composition by Felix Mendelssohn, followed by a Tchaikovsky encore.

Benjamin Baker took the opportunity to announce the launch of Chamber Music at the World’s Edge.  The aim is to bring chamber music events to the people of Central Otago on a regular and planned basis.

One of the highlights of the launch was a performance by precocious saxophonist Eliott Allemand, a graduate of the Lakes Community Music School.  Eliott showcased the potential of Turn Up the Music’s programme and its music school.

A number of events are planned over the course of 2019, including a performance by the Dunedin Symphony Orchestra in Queenstown on 31 August. Refer below.
