The programme for the weekend kicks off at 12pm on Friday, with the official introduction and a welcome lunch. Group lessons, saxophone orchestra rehearsals and masterclasses with our international guests will see participants through to dinner and an evening concert from one of our guest tutors.
Saturday will include saxophone orchestra rehearsal and individual lessons. After presentations from our sponsors, and group coaching sessions (in preparation for the participants’ concert), participants will head to New Plymouth city for the evening concert in town (featuring our tutors). Following the concert, participants will be free to visit to beautiful Pukekura Park to experience the magical Festival of the Lights.
Sunday’s programme will give the opportunity to ask questions/clarify material covered so far in preparation for the participants’ concert (individual/ensemble coaching) will see people up to lunch, after which the final public concert will take place at Puritawa Estate concert hall (at around 2pm). Activities will be concluded by 4pm on the Sunday, allowing time for participants to travel home.
