This concert commemorates Clace Schwabe, our long-term and much-loved colleague, who passed away last year. Her piece 'Tutaki' ('Meeting') was one of a few compositions from her pen other than the exercises and studies to be expected from a dedicated teacher. It shows both her gift for composition and her insight into the diverse culture of Aotearoa.
