School Concerts

FREE* concerts for school students designed to introduce them to the sights and sounds of the symphony orchestra. Lively and informative, these concerts will take you on a musical tour through the orchestra with eclectic and exciting music and demonstrations and an interactive presentation which brings students into the thick of the action.

In 2014 these performances are recommended for students in years 5-8.

In 2014, we’re delighted to present a concert featuring music written for and about the natural environment. Featuring works by Smetana , Beethoven and Strauss along with gems by New Zealand composers Philip Norman and Anthony Ritchie, these performances feature well-known orchestral excerpts and demonstrations all with an environmental focus.

Due to overwhelming demand in 2013, the NZSO reserve the right to limit each school to a total of 100 seats to each performance if necessary.

The concerts are FREE* and advance booking is essential. Bookings will open in October 2013, so please check back then to secure your seats. These concerts are recommended for students from years 5-8.

  • Each concert lasts approximately 50 minutes
  • Tickets are free and bookings are essential (NZSO reserve the right to limit each school to 100 tickets per booking if necessary)
  • There must be a ratio of 1 adult per 8 children. Home schooled and special needs groups should call 04 801 3862 to discuss flexibility to the child/adult ratio.

Please note we will only accept applications submitted via the online form available in the sidebar.
