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 performs four main concert series each year: usually two classical, one lighter 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.

Concertina! is our first concert programme in 2023, featuring the amazingly virtuoso piano accordion player Grayson Masefield and conductor Justus Rozemond. We will perform this concert at St John’s Rotorua on Sat 6 May @ 3.30pm and at Holy Trinity, Tauranga on Sun 7 May @ 3pm. Read more/Book NOW

Our 2023 programme also includes Rising Stars – entry is now open to secondary school instrumentalists and composers.
