This event has been cancelled.

Due to the impact of COVID-19, these concerts do look a little different but it's the same great orchestra you know and love.

Previously called Love Stories, this Great Classics series concert now features the magnificent New Zealand violinist Amalia Hall performing Tchaikovsky's devilishly difficult violin concerto. Recognised as one of the peaks of a violinist's repertoire.

The revised programme also features Suppé's Overture from Poet and Peasant, and Schumann's Symphony No.4.

Any tickets already purchased for this performance, even if they have the old concert name, will be valid for this performance.

Conductor Giordano Bellincampi

Violin Amalia Hall

Suppé Poet and Peasant: Overture

Tchaikovsky Violin Concerto

Schumann Symphony No.4

Suppé’s Overture from Elmar’s comedy Poet and Peasant (Dichter und Bauer) is one his most popular works with around 60 arrangements for different instrument combinations.

Tchaikovsky’s Violin Concerto was famously described as “unplayable” when it was first composed. Today it is recognised as one of the peaks of a violinist’s repertoire. Talented New Zealand violinist Amalia Hall is bound to prove the early critics wrong as she takes on this giant concerto.

To round off the evening Schumann’s fascinating Fourth Symphony. The first draft of which was written in a rush of creativity in just over a week, in a particularly happy phase of his life.

$2 per hour to a max of $12 on weekends and a $12 flat rate for weekday evenings at The Civic car park. Find out more
