Ta­lented trio to per­form at Plaza

South Waikato News - - NEWS -

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.
