The ASO is New Zealand’s largest community orchestra. Players are drawn from all walks of life and from all parts of Auckland and beyond. We provide an opportunity for musicians who have chosen a career outside performance music to enjoy weekly rehearsals of symphonic music, playing without payment and purely for the pleasure of making great music together. ASO supports local composers and soloists by giving them the opportunity to work and perform with a full symphony orchestra in concert. The orchestra’s main philosophy is that music should be fun and enjoyed by players and audiences alike - hence the regular, free community concerts. With over eighty players, the ASO has developed an excellent following and reputation for its high quality performances of popular classics, film and show music, often playing to capacity and turn-away audiences.
