Keeping THE new zealand symphony orchestra ON THE MOVE

New Zealand Van Lines are passionate supporters of the arts and have been the official transport carrier for the New Zealand Symphony Orchestra (NZSO) since 1987.

Every year the NZSO tours the whole of New Zealand often performing more than 100 concerts, taking place in the provincial towns as well as main centres. For over 35 years NZ Van Lines has been behind the scenes handling the logistics of getting the musical instruments and stage equipment on stage, on tour, on time.

This is how you move an orchestra

Take 95 musicians, instruments worth millions of dollars, ergonomic seats and assorted equipment such as music stands, sheet music and a conductor’s podium. Now move it all numerous times a year from Kerikeri to Invercargill and back

The Orchestra is in place. The house lights dim. The audience waits expectantly for the conductor to arrive. Within minutes, the NZSO will begin.

Have you ever wondered about the logistics and sequence of events which led up to this moment?
