Due to the arrival of COVID on our shores we had to postpone our big annual concert and rehearsals are on hold until Auckland drops to COVID Alert Level 2.
Last Night of the Proms is now scheduled for Friday 26th November at 7:30 pm
We really hope we will be able to go ahead with it this time and we expect a full house if it does.

Unfortunately there is too much wind for an outdoor concert today so we have had to cancel.
