Due to COVID-19 Alert Level 4 in force, this concert has been POSTPONED. We are working on rescheduling this concert to late September. Due to the uncertainty of COVID-19 Alert Levels at the end of September, we have temporarily suspended further ticket sales. For further information, please see our website

COVID-19 has again necessitated changes in our programme. The pianist from the Argyle Trio, Laurence Matheson, cannot enter New Zealand under the current restrictions. Michael Houstoun has agreed to perform with the other two members of the Trio, Wilma Smith and Matthias Balzat, for our concert.

Since retiring from the MSO, Wilma Smith has prioritised her chamber music roots, enjoying old and new relationships in the US and New Zealand as well as Australia. Matthias Balzat is a New Zealand born cellist and is currently 20 years old. He began playing the cello at the age of 3, and has completed his NZ studies under James Tennant. He is currently doing his masters degree in Düsseldorf. From Melbourne, Laurence Matheson is a 24 year old pianist who began his full-time studies in 2013. He was selected as a Fellow of the Australian National Academy of Music in 2016.
