DSO’s Concerts To Start Again! 

Greetings DSO supporters.  What a different year this has been.  As 2020 got into gear, we were counting down to the first series concert.  Then suddenly we were stopped in our tracks with the rapid move to the lockdown.  Unfortunately for us all, the start of the lockdown coincided with what would have been the start of a constant stream of our series concerts.  Furthermore not being able to feature our overseas conductors and soloists for the foreseeable future was (and still is) a blow.  We had no alternative but to cancel the series concerts.  Thank you to everyone for your patience and understanding as we were through that process. Now that NZ is at Level 1, we’re able to get back to the concert hall, and the DSO office is busy with preparations for our concerts.

One thing that has come out of the lockdown is that our concerts represent so many things that make our society a civilized one: the opportunity to meet up with like-minded people, the opportunity to enjoy the extraordinary talents of our very own orchestra plus our distinguished guest conductors and soloists, and the joyous experience of enjoying orchestral gems which transport us to such a wide variety of places and times

The finishing touches are being put to plans for the rest of 2020, and details of these will be announced shortly. 

We look forward to seeing you soon at our concerts
