In 2018 Gina will be leading an exciting new project with established international collaborators, including a noted Russian pianist and composer, now resident in Germany.
The project is called the Clevedon Valley Music Foundation Trust which has been set up to promote music in the South Auckland area.
We will be having a series of concerts (the next one is “Pastorale” on 19th August) leading up to the New Zealand Premiere of a Stabat Mater by brilliant Russian composer (resident in Germany), Vladimir Romanov, in a concert entitled “Music in the NEWS” that’s North East West South.
We have the even more exciting news that the composer is coming to New Zealand and will be present for the performance.
There is a Facebook Page where more information will be put up as the 9th of September approaches.
