After being hit by COVID (twice!) the Student Stars concert is back on again - this time on Sunday 18th October at 3 pm in the Theatre Royal.
But this does mean the 12 performers have had extra time to rehearse. Where else can you hear 12 top student musicians and two orchestras? The Taranaki Symphony Orchestra and the Taranaki Youth Orchestra have combined for this concert which will be an exciting and fantastic concert - great for the whole family.
For those who bought tickets for the previous postponed concert, your tickets and seats are still valid for the 18th. Otherwise tickets are still available from Ticketek (either at the box office or on-line).

But we are now planning on rescheduling this to September in the hope that we will be back into level 1 by then.
As soon as we have a confirmed date we'll update this posting.

This will be in the Alexandra Room at the TSB Showplace, this Saturday 20th June. Admission is only $10. This is the first public event in the Showplace since we have entered COVID level1. This competition is held every two years.

There will be a total of 17 competitors performing a movement from piano, violin or flute concertos, and a singer singing an aria. This is a wonderful opportunity to come along and listen to some of our amazing musical talent.

There are 3 separate classes at these times
Junior (under 13 yrs) : 09:00 to 10:15
Intermediate (13 yrs) : 10:15 to 12:00
Senior (over 13 yrs) : 12:45 to 15:15

The Orchestra will choose a number of these competitors to then perform with the Orchestra at a Student Stars concert that is currently scheduled for the middle of August 2020.
