BOP Symphonia: Symphony of Jazz

Hear a dazzling selection of jazz influenced orchestral music.

For the first time at the National Jazz Festival, the BOP Symphonia will jazz it up with Joplin, Gershwin and Ellington.

Featuring piano soloist Soomin Kim – winner of the BoPS Rising Stars concerto competition (2015) who has performed as soloist with the Auckland Philharmonia.

Justus Rozemond, the BOP Symphonia MD and Conductor since 2012 has arranged some of the works in the programme – the cross-over Ellington Suite: The River has probably not been performed in New Zealand before, while the orchestration of the Joplin Overture to Treemonisha was produced especially for this very occasion.

  • Justus Rozemond – Conductor
  • Soomin Kim – Piano


  • Joplin – Overture to Treemonisha
  • Gershwin – Rhapsody in Blue
  • Gershwin – Three Preludes
  • Duke Ellington – Suite: The River

COVID-19 Update

New Zealand Prime Minister Jacinda Ardern announced on Saturday afternoon tighter border controls, with everyone arriving in New Zealand having to isolate themselves for 14 days. There will be an official government directive on mass gatherings announced early next week.

We are awaiting details of the official requirements from government and local authorities and will update you as soon as possible if this could have any impact on this year’s National Jazz Festival and National Youth Jazz Competition.

Many thanks for your interest and support.
