New Zealand Chamber Soloists

The New Zealand Chamber Soloists have been performing regularly throughout New Zealand and overseas since 2006. The core group is a piano trio that combines the talents of Katherine Austin (piano), Lara Hall (violin), and James Tennant (cello). However Lara is currently on maternity leave.

For their forthcoming tour to China, Lara's place will be taken by Jin ('James') Xin as Guest Violinist. James is Associate Principal 2nd Violin with the Auckland Philharmonia Orchestra, and - although he has spent much of his life in New Zealand - his intimate knowledge of China makes him the perfect substitute for Lara.

The group is dedicated to presenting classical music as a spontaneous and vivid experience, in which the audience and performers are connected through the universal language of music.  Since its inception, the New Zealand Chamber Soloists have celebrated the unique voice of New Zealand's new generation of composers, alongside the works of the classical and 20th century traditions.
