POSTPONED UNTIL SUNDAY 25 SEPTEMBER 2022.
Guest conductor, New Zealander Tianyi Lu, will lead the MSO in this colourful programme at Vodafone Events Centre on Sat 20 November. She has chosen some of her favourite excerpts from Tchaikovsky’s magical Swan Lake ballet to commence this wonderful concert.
Percussionist, Rachel Thomas, will introduce Eric Ewazen’s Concerto for Marimba and String Orchestra. Written for the virtuoso She-E Wu, this work is considered to be one of the flagships of the marimba repertoire, as well as one of the most popular concertos played by percussionists. It is one of the most beautiful pieces written for the instrument, composed in Ewazen’s neoromantic harmonic language. Rachel brings her own five octave marimba to Manukau to perform this exhilarating work.
