The best and brightest of young musicians in Auckland — vibrant, exciting, aspirational.
In 2013, we perform two works written by Gustav Mahler on the 125th anniversary of their composition; the symphonic poem Totenfeier in May and Symphony No. 1 in October.
Also featuring this year is the Beethoven Violin Concerto with soloist and AYO Concertmaster Olivia Francis and Tchaikovsky Symphony No. 4.
In July, AYO is undertaking a 10 day tour of the South Island - including concerts in Dunedin, Invercargill, Te Anau, Wanaka, Westport and Nelson.
