UNWRAP THE MUSIC
Metlifecare partners with Auckland Philharmonia Orchestra
Metlifecare is proud to partner with the Auckland Philharmonia Orchestra (APO) Auckland’s only full-time professional orchestra.
Metlifecare is the naming sponsor of the musical series ‘Unwrap the Music’ – three concerts for both music lovers familiar with the orchestral classics, and for those who want to know more. Each performance features an interactive talk that takes the audience through the composition to help deepen their understanding and enjoyment of great orchestral works.
Whilst the ‘Unwrap the Music’ concerts take place in March, June and September at the Auckland Town Hall, the full season of APO concerts are available for residents to enjoy with discounted tickets to all APO concerts.
A few lucky Auckland-based Metlifecare Retirement Villages are also treated to special talks and performances by APO chamber music ensembles, either at their village or through exclusive rehearsals at Auckland Town Hall.
Glen Sowry, Chief Executive Officer of Metlifecare, says “the partnership is a fantastic opportunity to celebrate music, something the residents of Metlifecare villages already enjoy doing.”
“Our residents create and enjoy many musical moments in our villages, from forming their own choirs and bands, to organising entertainers to bring the music to them.”
“This partnership with the Auckland Philharmonia Orchestra’s ‘Unwrap the Music’ series opens a pathway to bring more music to our villages and exclusive access to the orchestra in the concert hall. We look enjoy seeing their performances at the Auckland townhall and hosting their special performances within our very own villages,” says Sowry.
Auckland Philharmonia Orchestra Chief Executive Barbara Glaser says “We are to partner with Metlifecare. As Auckland’s orchestra we value the opportunity to share the joy of orchestral music with everyone in our community. We welcome Metlifecare and the residents of their villages to the APO whānau.”

This glowing piece of music may well be Mozart’s most beloved concerto. Remarkably, written for an instrument which had only recently ‘joined’ the orchestra. Learn more about the clarinet as Graham Abbott unpicks the pinnacle of the clarinet repertoire. More details here
