Talented Local Returns for North Canterbury Academy of Music Anniversary

enigma-quartetLast night an appreciative audience in Rangiora’s Anglican Church listened to the Enigma String Quartet from Sydney.  One of them is Rangiora’s own Kerry Martin (that’s her at top left) who received her initial violin tuition through the North Canterbury Academy of Music.

After leaving Rangiora High School and gaining a Bachelor of Music at the University of Canterbury, Kerry went to Sydney to further her education and pursue her career as a full-time musician.  She is a previous winner of the New Zealand National Concerto Competition and recently gained a contract with the Australian Opera and Ballet Orchestra

The North Canterbury Academy of Music is celebrating its 25th anniversary this week with a series of concerts and master classes.

The Enigma Quartet will be performing again in Rangiora as part of the Academy’s Gala Concert in the Rangiora Town Hall this Saturday evening (7.00pm, 8 November)  at  the Rangiora Town Hall.  Tickets can be obtained at Harcourts Rangiora.
