MSO welcomes Guest Conductor, Eckhard Stier, APO Music Director from 2009 to 2015, for this exciting programme.The concert commences with Mendelssohn’s beautiful overture to A Midsummer Night’s Dream full of Shakespeare’s magical characters – Oberon, goblins, fairies and even a donkey!

Then MSO is joined by two Auckland Philharmonia Principal Musicians – Andrew Beer (violin) and Bede Hanley (oboe) for J. S. Bach’s Concerto for Oboe and Violin, followed by the powerful 5th Symphony of Tchaikovsky. Here, fate knocks at the door mingled with festive confusion – a profound statement of love, power and determination.
