Kōwhaiwhai - Orchestra symbols

Scarves and ties are so 1990s!

For years musicians performing at Auckland Philharmonia Learn & Participate concerts have shown off their section of the orchestra by adorning themselves with coloured scarves or ties: red for Strings, yellow for Brass, green for Percussion and blue for Woodwind. But this year we decided to make a change and get rid of the old-fashioned staples and replace them with something innovative which speaks to the bicultural context that the Auckland Philharmonia operates in within Aotearoa.

Step up our first partner school: Te Kura Māori o Nga Tapuwae.

Auckland Philharmonia's Learn & Participate programming have partnered with Te Kura Māori o Nga Tapuwae to create unique kōwhaiwhai (Māori designs) that will be displayed at education and family concerts across future Learn & Participate seasons.
