The Christchurch Symphony Orchestra performs three pieces composed in response to emotions and the world around us in the opening concert of the Lamb and Hayward Masterworks season. The concert includes Debussy's Nocturnes, designed to evoke the impression of moving clouds, a lively festival and ocean waves, and Prokofiev's Symphony No. 5 which was composed in the closing stages of World War Two and reflects a happy spirit. The orchestra will also be performing a Viola Concerto by New Zealand composer Chris Cree Brown with principal violinist Serenity Thurlow taking the lead. Tickets start at $28. A pre-concert talk starts an hour before the performance.
