Event Details

The Auckland Philharmonia Orchestra takes you and your littlies on a ride to the Caribbean for this festive concert. Hear all of your Christmas favourites, such as ‘Rudolph the Red Nose Reindeer’ and ‘Jingle Bell Rock’ with the tropical twist of steel pans!

The orchestra will be joined by talented steel pan artists The Panimals. The steel pan is the national instrument of Caribbean islands Trinidad and Tobago as well as the iconic instrument used in the beloved The Little Mermaid movie soundtrack.

The festivities kick off with a special Show & Tell in the foyer, where musicians will be performing and showing off their instruments 45-minutes before the concert. Kids are encouraged to watch, listen, and even have a go at some of the instruments on display!

And don’t forget the walk-through of the orchestra as the musicians play the final pieces of the day.


Children under two years old can enjoy the performance for free, but a ticket will still need to be booked for them.

Children two years old and over are: $15

Adults $15

Family (2 adults and 2 children) $50
