The gala concerts are held at 2:00pm for chamber orchestras & concert bands and 6:30pm for orchestras & jazz bands.

This year the Gala Concerts will include the following works by New Zealand composers: Solar Phoenix (David Hamilton), Auckland Grammar School Symphony Orchestra PLK (Kaito Walley), Pukekohe High School Stage Band Childrens Suite (Larry Pruden), Macleans Chamber Orchestra Ponsonby Road (Jonathan Besser), Sebastian Squad (St Cuthbert’s College) Shkumbin (Warwick Robinson), Westlake Chamber Orchestra

The festival celebrates 27 years in 2010, having started out as the Auckland Secondary Schools Band and Orchestra Festival. The Festival began with a few schools combining for performances and has since grown in both size and stature. In 2009 there were 120 groups represented from more than 40 schools from the greater Auckland region.
