The Virtuoso Strings Orchestra is run on a volunteer basis, and provides free lessons, instruments, uniforms, food, transport, tours, concerts, to students in the low-decile Eastern suburbs of Porirua, who would not otherwise have the chance to learn to play a string instrument.
Virtuoso Strings are holding two free, fun and family concerts in Wanaka and Arrowtown in July:
Wanaka: 7:30pm on Monday the 16th of July at the Lake Wanaka Centre
Arrowtown: 7:30pm on Tuesday the 17th of July at the Athenaeum Hall
Music in the concert ranges from Vivaldi's Spring and Elgar's Cello Concerto to Tangos, Beatles tunes, and even a Shostakovich string quartet! Families welcome! The longest piece is around eight minutes, and there is an MC to keep things interesting and fun!
Entry is free, but a Koha is much appreciated! The tour is free to the students from Porirua, and we rely on Grants and Donations to fund it.
