The Auckland Wind Orchestra

The Auckland Wind Orchestra, founded in 1967, aims to be New Zealand’s finest community wind ensemble. We regularly stage concerts in the Auckland region, performing a broad range of musical styles to a wide audience. Our players come from all walks of life, united by the desire to have fun while making great music.
