Central Otago Regional Orchestra
A delightful collection of classics will be performed by the Central Otago Regional Orchestra (CORO). CORO has been in the Central Otago region for thirty years and during this time has grown considerably in strength. The orchestra is currently under the baton of Ashley Hopkins.
We are very fortunate to have Patrick Cornfield playing the well-known Grieg Piano Concerto in A minor on the “world class” Steinway Grand in the Lake Wanaka Centre. Add some more Grieg in the form of In the Hall of the Mountain Kingand Morning from Peer Gynt, then flavour the programme with Dvorak's Slavonic Dances 1 to 4 and Weber’s Oberon Overture and....Voila! a musical feast fit for any mountain king basking in the Northern Lights.
Our featured soloist, Patrick ‘Paddy’ Cornfield, is an English pianist from Auckland. He has performed with the Devonport Chamber Orchestra annually since 2004, collaborating with Ashley Hopkins until 2015. He has pushed the description of ‘chamber orchestra’ to the limit and has a relaxed approach to music making.
Adults $20, school children/students free. Cash bookings at Gifted Design, Helwick Street or eventfinda.com. Cash door sales available.
