Creative Mercury Bay welcome AYO to Whitianga as they bring to us their latest repertoire “Firebird”. Under the direction of Antun Poljanich who has lead the orchestra since 1999 the orchestra is a regular favourite to Whitianga audiences and this visit will be no exception.
“Firebird” includes an oboe soloist Noah Rudd playing and Oboe concerto by NZ composer Anthony Ritchie.
Noah began his journey on the oboe at the age of 9. He is now in his second year of a Bachelor of Music at the University of Auckland, where is has achieved several awards. Noah has been a member of the Auckland Youth Orchestra since 2014. As the winner of last year’s AYO Soloist Competition, Noah is proud to be premiering a New Zealand piece by Anthony Ritchie.
