Top Young Chamber Musicians to Perform in China
Top young New Zealand chamber music ensemble Geist is heading to China in September to perform with well-known New Zealand pianist John Chen.
The Auckland string quartet of Westlake Girls High School students Lauren Bennett (violin), Britta Balzat (violin), Sophia Lee (viola) and Sally Kim (cello) were invited on the tour following their winning performance at the New Zealand Community Trust Chamber Music Contest earlier this month. It was the second year running Geist had taken top honours in the contest – a first in the contest’s 47-year history.
“Geist was simply superb at the contest performing the first two movements from Debussy’s string quartet in G minor,” says Chamber Music New Zealand chief executive Euan Murdoch.
