DYO prepares for “Night Ringing with Unseen Larks” concert

The Dunedin Youth Orchestra has resumed rehearsing for our upcoming concert ‘Night Ringing with Unseen Larks’ after a couple of weeks off for Easter and school holidays. We are working hard towards our next concert, which will take place on Wednesday 27th May, at Knox Church. Information for the concert will make its way to the website within the next week so keep a look out!

Our preparations for this concert began back in February, when we started assembling our orchestra for the year. We are proud to boast the largest orchestra in recent years. Even sections that have been hard to fill–such as violas, cellos, bassoons, and horns–are bursting at the seams.

The orchestra are also excited for their upcoming sectional weekend on the 2nd and 3rd of May, a fantastic experience for our members to get section advice from fantastic and skilled musicians from the Southern Sinfonia. (Photos will follow!)

Entries for the Audrey Reid Composition Prize have now closed, with the winner to be announced at our May concert. The orchestra always enjoys premiering these young composers’ works and we wish all applicants the best of luck with their submissions.

We had some photos taken of us during our last rehearsal, we hope you enjoy them! We are looking forward to getting back into rehearsals again, and can’t wait to see you at our concert later in the month!
