Newsletter October/November - From Philippa Harris, General Manager

Early summer greetings! As the end of the year approaches, it’s time to say ‘thank you’ to all our audiences, our sponsors and our donors for their very generous support, and also our funders who have demonstrated that they too are in for the long haul with us.

This strong community support stood us in good stead with Creative NZ who recently announced a three-year (2023 – 2025) grant for us. This support means we can plan with confidence on presenting world-class artists and concerts in 2023.

While the 2022 concert year took a while to get going, we’ve certainly recently been making up for lost time: as well as our many memorable concerts with great musicians, we've enjoyed the concert for babies, a community Monster Mozart Mash, NZ Opera/Dunedin Arts Festival’s new operatic masterpiece The Strangest of Angels, a Ukraine fundraiser, and workshops for composers, violinists and cellists (with the University of Otago).

Before we finish the year with our Schools Tour and our performance of Mozart’s sublime Requiem with City Choir Dunedin, coming up soon is the much-awaited phwealth concert on 5 November featuring NZSO Conductor Emeritus James Judd, and sensational violin soloist Amalia Hall. With these two exceptional musicians, it promises to be a fitting finale to the DSO’s 2022 season. Look forward to seeing you there.
