Gallagher Academy of Performing Arts
Gate 1, University of Waikato, Knighton Road
This hour long programme of Copland’s Appalachian Spring and Saint-Saëns The Carnival of the Animals has been chosen to connect the audience with the natural world and this beautiful music. Our audience seated around the performers will enjoy an intimate connection with the music and the musicians in the warm acoustic of Te Whare Tapere Iti, Gallagher Academy of Performing Arts. Beyond the performers our audience will have a view of the lake and gardens at dusk, and later the reflection of the lights on the water.
