Music to Marlborough’s ears


William Woodworth

Members of the Marlborough Chinese community are set to welcome world-renowned chamber musicians to the region.

Organiser and president of the Nelson and Marlborough New Zealand Chinese Association Xuemei Zhang says the performances are of “great significance.”

“To be able to invite highly accomplished musicians from China to visit our beautiful Marlborough region and share their talents of music with us is great significance to us.”

The world-renowned Amber Quartet and supporting New Zealand musicians will be in Blenheim and Picton as part of their “The Art of Collaboration” tour.

Violinists Ning Fangliang and Yajing Su, Qi Wang on viola, and founder and cellist Yang Yichen, are individually and collectively, some of China’s most accomplished classical musicians.

Marlborough Libraries manager Glenn Webster is excited to be hosting the famed Quartet.

“As part of our commitment to offer new opportunities to the people of Marlborough, we are thrilled to host the world acclaimed Amber Quartet,” he says.

The performances will be held at Picton Library on the 24 April at 3.30pm and St Andrew’s Presbyterian Church in Blenheim on the 25 April at 7pm.

Tickets are available on Eventbrite website and cash sales will be available at the door for $10.
