Auckland Philharmonia Orchestra Virtual Play-In

During the first New Zealand lockdown in March-May, the Auckland Philharmonia Orchestra invited musicians around New Zealand and the world to contribute to a virtual play in. Players recorded a video of themselves performing along with a reference track and submitted it to the APO who edited it all together. This is the result:

Over 250 musicians from across the world joined the APO for this special virtual performance of the Radetsky March by J. Strauss Sr. Featuring musicians from Aotearoa, Mexico, USA, Canada, Spain, Japan, China, Australia, UK, Ireland, Italy and Denmark. Conductor – Vincent Hardaker, Assistant Conductor-in-Residence. Supported by Freemason’s Foundation and Ivanov Consulting
