Chamber music trio Toru will be performing at Paekakariki Memorial Hall on Sunday March 11 at 2.30pm. Formed in 2015, Toru is a dynamic chamber music trio presenting music for an intriguing combination of instruments. “We are featuring the harp as an instrument this year,” Mulled Wine Concerts organiser Mary Gow said. She is now in her 10th year of presenting high quality music for discerning Kapiti audiences. “Usually you see it off to the side of the orchestra, but it has a gorgeous sound in its own right, it looks stunning and deserves a better hearing. “The programme features music from Italy (Persichetti), Japan (Takemitsu) and of course, Germany (Beethoven’s Serenade, Op 25).” The programme is suitable for all ages with most of the pieces around five minutes in duration. Acclaimed New Zealand harpist Ingrid Bauer is making her mark on the classical music scene with her lyrical and colourful interpretations of both standard and new repertoire. As a soloist Ingrid has performed with the Australian National Academy of Music Chamber Orchestra, Wellington Youth Orchestra and Kapiti
