Virtuoso Strings Youth Orchestra and patron Jonathan Lemalu perform at Wellington Opera House, December 3, 7.30pm.
Grammy award-winning operatic bass and recently appointed patron, Jonathan Lemalu, joins creative forces with Virtuoso Strings Youth Orchestra and acclaimed conductor Maestro Kenneth Young for a fantastic evening of classical and popular music at Wellington's Opera House on Monday 3rd December at 7.30pm.
Based in Porirua, this wonderful youth orchestra is made up of talented and vibrant New Zealand, Maori and Pacific Island artists beginning their own creative journeys.
"It's tremendously exciting and the ultimate honour for me as an artist to support this orchestra. And to do so with an inclusive music charity that broadens New Zealand's classical landscape is the perfect mission statement to put my name, patronage and full support behind"
The evening includes music by Bach, Mozart, Gershwin, Copland, Rodgers and Hammerstein; something for all audiences and ages, and is a chance for Wellington to come and support the youth of New Zealand Music realising their dreams.
