An Amazing Experience for Alexander Botha
Our Year 11 student Alexander Botha is a member of the AYO and he recently returned from an amazing experience in Europe. 2018 is a very special year for the AYO (Auckland Youth Orchestra) as it is their 70th birthday. To celebrate this, the orchestra went on a tour around Europe representing New Zealand at an international Youth Festival in Berlin and the Young Artists Festival in Bayreuth. Alexander enjoyed specialist tutoring from several professionals, such as the JS Bach Music School in Vienna and the Slovenia National Orchestra in Dobrna. Some of the Slovenia National Orchestra players joined the tour group and the trombone player was a tutor for Alexander during the tour. He played in amazing concert halls and churches to sold out audiences around Europe, including Vienna, Dobrna, Prague, Berlin, Bayreuth and Tübingen. All concerts received standing ovations. Another highlight was meeting the New Zealand Ambassador Rupert Holborow after their performance in the Konzerthaus Berlin.Well done Alexander! We are proud of you.
