APO Visit – Auckland Town Hall

On Thursday 19th May, 40 Year 10 Music Students had the great opportunity of going to Auckland Town Hall and attending a concert performed by the Auckland Philharmonic Orchestra (APO). They got to hear world class musicians at work and also experienced the beautiful Auckland Town Hall venue in all its splendour.
