NZSO cancels Invercargill concerts in September
Your safety and wellbeing during the pandemic are our No. 1 priority. Due to the current Covid-19 restrictions, the NZSO has made the difficult decision to cancel its Setting Up Camp tour to Invercargill this month.
This means the Orchestra’s performances of Peter and the Wolf and Town and Country at Invercargill’s Civic Theatre on 25 September are cancelled.
Tickets will be refunded via the ticketing agency, which will contact you directly.
We know that audiences in Invercargill will be disappointed that the Peter and the Wolf and Town and Country concerts will not go ahead. These concerts can only be performed to a live audience at Alert Level 1 and a return to Alert Level 1 is uncertain this month.
We are still determined to perform in Invercargill this year and your Orchestra is working hard to see if we can bring other concerts to the deep south before Christmas.
We continue to be grateful for the patience and understanding of our audiences this year.
We will return.
The country and the city come together in this programme paying homage to two very different landscapes.
Beethoven once said: “No one can love the country as much as I do” and this was never more evident than in his Pastoral symphony, a sentimental depiction of the Viennese countryside. Malcolm Arnold’s English Dances, meanwhile, gathers the best of English country folk dances into a charming and colourful suite of toe-tapping tunes.
From the English countryside, we head to the Argentine capital with the vibrant energy of Piazzolla’s Tangazo: Variations On Buenos Aires before we travel to Spain’s rural Andalusia region for Suite No. 1 from De Falla’s delightfully charming The Three-Cornered Hat.
Renowned film composer John Barry is best known for writing some of the most memorable music in film history and the Main Title of his Academy Award-winning soundtrack from Out of Africa is no exception, painting a vivid picture of the expansive African plains. Is there a place that evokes the bright lights and excitement of the City more than New York? Leonard Bernstein’s Three Dance Episodes, from the musical On the Town, brings 1940s New York to life before your eyes, with its slinky jazz melodies, hopping bebop rhythms and irresistible swing.
