Ten years of New Zealand’s best music teaching

“In art, the best is the standard. When you hear a new violinist, you do not compare him to the kid next door; you compare him to Sternand Heifetz.” - Ursula K Le Guin

Now celebrating its tenth anniversary, ten years of ongoing success, the Akaroa Music Festival is New Zealand’s premiere residential music school. Every January, an array of distinguished international classical musicians provide ten days of lessons, masterclasses and concerts against the breathtaking backdrop of one of the world’s most beautiful seaside towns. The festival accepts advanced and enthusiastic young musicians from all over New Zealand and abroad. Classes are open to school students, university students and adults.

A past concertmaster of the Bamberg Symphony Orchestra, violinist and violist Elizabeth Kufferath is currently a professor of violin at the Hochschule für Musik und Theater in Hanover. She is an active chamber musician and a founding member of the Tetzlaff Quartet and has appeared as a soloist with orchestras such as the WDR Symphony Orchestra in Cologne and the World Youth Symphony Orchestra. She regularly visits New Zealand to work with the Pettman National Junior Academy.

Ten years old and going from strength to strength, the Akaroa Music Festival is building the future of New Zealand music. More information at the website.
