The New Zealand Symphony Orchestra is this country’s only full-time, full-strength, professional symphony orchestra. One of the world’s oldest national symphony orchestras, we’ve been delighting audiences with memorable concerts and recordings since 1946.
We’re continually on the road, touring as many as 100 symphonic concerts as well as dozens of dedicated concerts for children and small communities each year. While we present all our main programmes in Auckland and Wellington, we tour New Zealand extensively.
We perform in concert halls, schools, marae, hospitals, parks, rest homes and even on railway platforms. You’ll hear us on radio, television, in movies and on CD. You can download our music and keep up with us on Facebook and Twitter. Our extensive Community and Education programmes take our music to children and young people up and down New Zealand, giving them a chance to get up close and personal with our players and inspire them towards a life-long love of music.
