Two young string quartets have been invited to join our inaugural AWE Festival Emerging Artist Programme. Viereinigkeit, or ‘four-in-oneness’, are a string quartet from Auckland and the recent winners of the 2021 Royal Overseas League Pettman Scholarship. Wellington quartet Ravelation were the 2020 winners of the NZCT Chamber Music Contest.
During the weekend of AWE Festival, both Viereinigkeit and Ravelation will receive bespoke mentoring and coaching from AWE Festival artists in preparation for a public showcase performance on Sunday 17 October prior to the final festival performance (see below).
For two days following the AWE Festival weekend, our Emerging Artists will continue to work closely with our Education Director and Festival Artists to prepare for multiple community performances alongside Festival Artists within ten schools around the Central Lakes region to over 2,000 students.
This is a free event. If you would like to attend, please just come along!
Vereinigkeit and Ravelation perform a selection of works (details to come) alongside Festival Artist Sarah Watkins (piano).
