The Mimosa Ensemble will perform for the Waikanae Music Society concert on Sunday 26 July. An exceptional young chamber music group featuring flute, oboe, bassoon and piano, they are all young New Zealanders returning from their overseas studies to tour the country under the auspices of Chamber Music New Zealand. Hugh Roberts (flute) Thomas Hutchinson (oboe) and Todd Gibson-Cornish (bassoon) have between them won almost all the prizes for wind players that New Zealand and Australia can offer and have clocked up a vast amount of orchestral experience both in New Zealand and overseas. With them will be pianist Somi Kim. Somi, as a member of the exciting eight hands on two pianos ensemble Estrella, was awarded the Pettman/Royal Overseas League Arts International Scholarship in 2012 and since then has been undertaking solo piano studies at the Royal Academy of Music in London. This year she makes her Southbank debut at the Purcell Room as a Park Lane Group Artist.

Of special interest to Waikanae Music Society is the inclusion of bassoonist Todd Gibson-Cornish in this ensemble. In 2012 Todd was a recipient of a scholarship from the society’s Charitable Trust for Young Musicians, and members of the society have been following his progress with interest. While studying at the Royal College of Music in London, his professional free-lance orchestral work has included playing with the London Symphony Orchestra, Philharmonia Orchestra and as guest principal bassoonist for the City of Birmingham Symphony Orchestra.

The Mimosa Ensemble will be performing works for varying combinations of wind and piano by composers such as Bruch, Schumann, Beethoven, Elgar and others, and their programme also includes a new work from Salina Fisher, a successful young New Zealand composer.

The concert, in the Waikanae Memorial Hall, starts at 2.30pm. Door sales will be available or tickets can be purchased from Waikanae New World, Moby Dickens Books in Paraparaumu Beach and Lush Design Gallery in Raumati.
