Auckland Philharmonia Orchestra and the University of Auckland Present: Fireworks

24 Oct

Following on from 2011’s highly successful Sacre, the Auckland Philharmonia and the University of Auckland’s Dance Studies Programme have come together to present Fireworks.

The performance sees one hundred students from the University of Auckland, Tangaroa College, Pakuranga Intermediate and Wiri Central School come together for an evening of music and dance in the Telstra Pacific Events Centre.

APO Chief Executive Barbara Glaser says she is delighted that so many of last year’s participants have returned.

 Everyone involved with Sacre was determined that it must not be a one-off, so it’s a joy to again stage a dance project with the University of Auckland, Tangaroa College and Pakuranga Intermediate, and to welcome a new school, Wiri Central.

 We know the performing arts can change people’s lives, and Sacre demonstrated the value of projects such as these. I know that Fireworks will give the young participants experiences and skills they will carry for the rest of their lives.”
