Orchestra of note comes to town By JORDYN O'SHEA DOUBLE PASS TO WIN Readers can be in to win two tickets by answering the question: What event has the Auckland Youth Orchestra been invited to perform in Berlin this year? Email firstname.lastname@example.org or post to Nor-west News orchestra show competition, PO Box 46, Kumeu, by March 31. A spectacle of raw classic talent is expected next month with 80 of Auck- land's most promising young musicians coming to Helensville. The Auckland Youth Orchestra is performing in the nor-west for the first time. Kumeu resident Ash- ley The could not be happier about it as a first-year member. The 18-year-old cello player is looking forward to her first big show so close to home at Helensville War Mem- orial Hall on April 2 from 2pm. It's definitely difficult because it's a much higher standard than I'm used to. But it's fun and I'm really enjoying it.'' Musical director and conductor Antun Poljan- ich says he loves taking the show to smaller places where big orchestras like the New Zealand Symphony Orchestra do not go. Bringing it to small communities I think is sometimes very encour- aging and inviting.'' The event is called In Lux Aetena and includes three different sections, featuring music from Arvo Part, Mozart and Tchaikovsky. Award-winning solo pianist Jane Sohn will also play with the orchestra. Mr Poljanich says this show will be good for people who do not often go to symphony orches- tra concerts. It's a great oppor- tunity to learn about a variety of music from very contemporary styles of music to Mozart and Tchaikovsky. We guarantee great excitement.'' As one of the oldest symphony orchestras in Australasia, it is a charity-based organis- ation which relies heavily on donations. It takes budding young players aged 16 to 25 and gives them the skills and experience needed to become professional musicians. Performing all over the world, the orchestra has been invited to play at the prestigious Young Euro Classic Festival this year in Berlin. Jordyn O'Shea is an AUT journalism student.

Mr Holland has a degree in history and is a former journalist and public relations analyst. He and his support team are members of the New Zealand Society of Genealogists. He speaks from 10am at St Chad's church hall, corner of Matua and Oraha roads, Huapai.
