Playing for Manukau
since 1993

Based in South Auckland, New Zealand, the Manukau Symphony Orchestra has a unique mix of professional, student and community musicians, and is known for its ‘very special spirit’. Composed of around 80 players aged between 12 and 80, the MSO presents a series of varied concerts annually to patrons from across Auckland at the Due Drop Events Centre (formerly the Vodafone Events Centre), Manukau, and Te Tuhi Art Gallery, Pakuranga, featuring local and international artists.

Join The Orchestra

When you join the MSO, you also become part of the MSO whānau. The MSO gives several concerts each season, and rehearsals start a few weekends before the concert.
