Classical skill for free A repertoire of classical guitar music will feature in this month s Expressions Live! con- cert. The free monthly concert series featuring New Zealand School of Music students offers them the opportunity to hone their performance skills, and music lovers the chance to hear some of the country s finest young musicians. Dr Jane Curry, head of classi- cal guitar at the school, says opportunities to perform are essential for young musicians as they build their careers. She has recently taken up the NZSM position after nearly seven years studying in the United States where she gained a Doctorate in Musical Arts from the Univer- sity of Arizona. She says that many of her generation of young musicians went to the US where there is a strong classical guitar culture and opportunities to take part in competitions and festivals, where musicians can earn money and build reputations. Back in this country, she combines teaching and performing and is a member of the New Zealand Guitar Quar- tet, which has recently toured New Zealand. Performance opportunities are vital for students at the NZSM. The Expressions series, as well as other series hosted by Old St Paul s and St Andrew s on the Terrace, are important in providing students with the experience of performing to an audience outside their normal performance sphere. Public performances give students the opportunity to gain confidence in developing a rapport with an audience. There is an expression called smelting which I think is quite apt -- when you are in the heat of a performance, you figure out how to build a relationship with your music under pressure and work out the impurities, so that next time it is that much better. There comes a point where a musician s development can only go so far in the practice room; performance takes it to the next level, Dr Curry says. The concert will be at Expressions on Tuesday, August 16, at 1pm. The classical guitar ensemble will feature eight tal- ented NZSM musicians who will perform ensemble works by J S Bach, Vivaldi and Peter War- lock, as well as a selection of trios, duos and solos ranging from baroque to the 20th cen- tury. Donations will go towards the purchase of a Kawai RX-2 piano, purchased for the centre s Rotary Foyer, and to establish a scholarship for a top performing NZSM student. Trombone player lands fifth win By JIMMY NESS Musical maestros: Upper Hutt residents, from left, Russell Boyle, Mike Ives and Ian Tilley play in Hutt City Brass which won the B grade at the national championships. Music to our ears . . . Upper Hutt s Russell Boyle has won the New Zealand Open Bass Trombone competition for the fifth time. Mr Boyle won his fifth title at the 2011 National Brass Band Cham- pionships in Takapuna. He won the competition in 1979, 1984, 2004 and 2006. Mr Boyle says the competition has got harder over time, but he putalotofworkintowinthe event. You work hard and you prac- tise hard, and you try and win it. It s a good feeling. The compositions are becoming harder and harder. It s just music is evolving, the players are getting better and there s just more com- petition. He says he first started playing instruments at the age of 11 when he joined the Waipawa Primary School band. A notice came around asking if any boys wanting to play. I asked my father if it was OK, and he said ask for a cornet . Mr Boyle also plays in the Hutt City Brass band along with locals Mike Ives and Ian Tilley. The band outplayed about 29 other groups from New Zealand and Australia to be crowned the B grade winner at the champion- ships. It is the first time they have won the competition since the band began in 1993. Mr Boyle says they were in third place until the last section, where they played a piece of their own choice and won by a single point. The way it was going it looked like Hamilton was going to win. We came from behind -- very much so. We rose to the occasion. That was a very positive sur- prise. The band is based in Moera and is always on the lookout for new players, so if you are a brass or percussion player and would be interested in joining, contact band manager Graham Sewell at firstname.lastname@example.org.
