Electrifying’ – ‘extraordinarily animated’ – ‘featuring rare and natural charisma’… These are words used to describe Fiona Pears, the highly talented violinist and composer from Christchurch.

Describing her musical influences as Stephane Grappelli, Django Reinhardt, John Williams and Jean Luc Pointy, Pears performs Celtic, Classical, Tango, Jazz and Gypsy with equal ease, sometimes all in the same composition!

New Zealand born and now dividing her time between London and Lyttelton, Fiona has performed and recorded with artists such as Dave Dobbyn, Hayley Westenra, Bic Runga, and has opened for Tony Bennett, Ottmar Liebert and ‘the clown prince of Denmark’, the late Victor Borge. Personal highlights include appearing at Ronnie Scott’s world famous jazz club in London and performing her own compositions and arrangements with the Royal Liverpool Philharmonic.

Expect a fiery melting pot of flavours – and a thrilling, visually stunning experience.
