Talented trio to perform at Plaza
The South Waikato Music Society will host three highly gifted musicians on September 25 at The Plaza.
At the heart of the New Zealand Chamber Soloists is a piano trio consisting of pianist Katherine Austin, violinist Lara Hall and cellist James Tennant.
Lara Hall is a lecturer in violin and viola at the University of Waikato and artistic director of Accelerando, the University of Waikato Junior Music Academy.
James Tennant is an Americanborn cellist, graduated with distinction from the Interlochen Arts Academy and the University of Michigan, and counts as his major teaching influences William Pleeth, Gregor Piatigorsky and Jerome Jelinek.
Katherine Austin is lecturer in piano at the University of Waikato and was the winner of the 1982 New Zealand Young Musician of the Year. She also won the New Zealand National Piano Award that year. All three musicians are passionate about revitalising classical music. The South Waikato News has one double pass to give away. Tell us who one of James Tennant’s influences are along with your name and contact details.
