Bay of Plenty Symphonia is a community orchestra based in Tauranga, made up of enthusiastic amateur musicians of all ages from around the Bay of Plenty.

The orchestra usually performs three concerts each year: usually two classical, and one particularly supporting youth endeavours and education.  Although most of our concerts are in Tauranga we also perform in other parts of the Bay and we have an established and loyal audience from various parts of the region.  Read numerous positive reviews of our concerts in Past Events.

Our next concerts, which feature the Bay of Plenty Symphonia Strings, are on Saturday 24 August, 7.30pm @ St Peter’s at the Mount, 15 Victoria Road, Mt Maunganui, and Sunday 25 August, 3pm @ John Paul College in Rotorua. Read more. Tickets on sale soon!
