Join us for an evening of fabulous music and fun! Our annual Proms Concert will showcase the award-winning Westlake Symphony Orchestra, Choralation Choir and Voicemale Choir.

Our concerto soloist is viola player Cecile McNeill, who will play ‘When Gravity Fails’ by Christchurch composer Philip Norman.  We are honoured to have a special guest conductor – NZ’s only international Steinway artist, Jason Bae, who will conduct the overture to comic opera The Merry Wives of Windsor (Otto Nicolai). Jason is a Westlaker, internationally renowned concert pianist, and up and coming conductor. Here’s his website: http://jasonbaepianist.com/

Of course the programme will also include all the’Last Night of the Proms’ favourites: ‘Jerusalem’, ‘Land of Hope and Glory’ and ‘Rule Britannia!’ with guest solist Dr. Morag Atchison.

The concert begins at 7.30pm in the Westlake Boys Auditorium.  Refreshments will be available in the interval.  Feel free to don your best British-themed outfit (prize for best-dressed) and wave your Union Jack!
