Fasten your concert seat-belts as the DSO concert season takes off! Our 14 April concert features two outstanding guest artists. Don’t miss the rare chance to experience technical wizardry and superb interpretation of internationally-renowned Shlomo Mintz who is unquestionably one of the world’s very best violinists. We’re delighted that after three years of planning this concert is finally possible. Joining him on stage on 14 April will be Spanish conductor José Luis Gomez. This fast-rising star of the music world will be on his first visit to Dunedin. Also making their first appearance with the DSO in June will be the superb NZ Guitar Quartet when they perform Rodrigo’s “other” guitar concerto Concierto Andaluz– written for four guitars! Under the masterly direction of Kenneth Young, the orchestra will also perform Jack Speirs’ Night Music in celebration of Matariki. The programme finishes with Mozart’s elegant and lively Haffner symphony.

Tickets for these concerts can be bought in several different ways. One option is a ‘one-stop-shop’ concert ticket subscription (at discounted prices) available through the DSO office. This is for those wishing to go to all of the concerts in either our International or Matinee Series – or both Series! There’s also our Flexi-Ticket option which gives a discounted price for those wishing to ‘pick and mix’ three concerts out of the full offering. For single concert tickets, you can either buy these online via our ticket agents or by visiting the outlets in person . You may have noticed media articles on the NZ Commerce Commission’s investigation into the reselling website Viagogo. We urge those of you wishing to buy online to follow the Commision’s advice to seriously consider whether buying from Viagogo is worth the risk.

We look forward to seeing you at the concerts!
