Trust Waikato Symphony Orchestra
BY, WITH AND FOR THE COMMUNITY
Engaging orchestra experiences that enrich the lives of community, players and audiences in Hamilton and across the wider Waikato.
The Trust Waikato Symphony Orchestra is one of the longest-established orchestras in New Zealand. The 160 community musician members include amateur players, music students and instrumental music teachers, all drawn from the Waikato region, with players ranging in age from 18 to 80.
“Brilliant concert! … I felt really spoilt as a mother with children in different cities to have a lovely concert to go to, and to have a chocolate! … It was so cool to look at the orchestra from a different perspective … What came across was that they looked happy to be on stage. I was also struck by what a stable group it is. Lots of the people have been playing together for a long time” - Audience member
We are always looking for passionate musicians to join our orchestra!
Rehearsals are at the Gallagher Academy of Performing Arts on Monday nights. It’s a wonderful spot for practising as the acoustics are fantastic and the building is beautiful. There is lots of space and parking, as well as a social area.
We are extremely grateful to our naming sponsor, Trust Waikato.
