We had great seats for last weekend’s Anniversary Day concert by the Auckland Symphony Orchestra featuring the Lady Killers. They did a summer on the wharf pops repertoire, which the conductor did his best to sound happy about. But I think he might been more comfortable with Mahler’s ‘Planets’ than with Freddie Mercury.
But the orchestra totally rocked Bohemian Rhapsody anyway… the Lady Killers are all women of a certain age, but at least one of them still has all the high range she needs. Then, the lasers came on and were amazing and so were the fireworks.
