The Auckland Philharmonia Orchestra is live-streaming the mighty Turangilîla tonight at 8pm.  Over one million people from across the world have viewed Auckland Philharmonia Orchestra’s recent live-stream series so far. The APO Encore Live-stream Concerts take place every Thursday evening at 8pm (NZST). In addition they have offered APO Coffee Break every Tuesday morning at 10am (NZST) with an hour of relaxing music.

APO CEO Barbara Glaser says, “We are delighted with the interest in our online activities. While we will of course always be a company led by concert hall performances, and are all feverishly keen to get back together making music again, a wonderful surprise of the COVID-19 pandemic has been the digital explosion in the arts.”
