Description

Telling the story of the first 50 years of New Zealand’s National Youth Orchestra, this account covers its successful international tours and performances in cities around New Zealand as well as its 2009 concert season. The first history of the New Zealand Symphony Orchestra's (NZSO) Youth Orchestra, the chronicle is enlivened by the memories and stories of past members. Including photographs, posters, and programs drawn from the group's archives as well as personal collections, this warm and accessible compilation celebrates the orchestra’s unique character.
