Written for the Auckland Philharmonia Education concerts, this piece demonstrates the different sections of the orchestra.
After a short introduction played by the full orchestra, each of the sections of the orchestra take turns to play the main theme. The strings begin playing both with the bow (arco) and plucking (pizzicato), followed by the woodwind section which begins with the whole woodwind section and then the double reed instruments, the oboes and bassoons, which have a section by themselves. The brass then take over and finally the percussion lead the orchestra back into a reprise of the opening section to conclude.
