The Greytown Music Group is hosting the New Zealand Guitar Quartet, comprising the com- bined forces of four of New Zealand s finest guitarists, on Sunday. With the relocation of one and the return of another from over- seas, all members of the group are now based in Wellington and the NZGQ is ready to take flight in Greytown this weekend. Members of the quartet, Owen Moriarty, Cheryl Grice- Watterson, Chris Hill and Jane Curry, have all received acclaim as soloists on concert stages around the world and in a mul- titude of international guitar competitions. Together, they form an exciting, dynamic and engaging ensemble. Ms Curry completed a doctor- ate in musical arts (University of Arizona) and is head of the classical guitar department at the New Zealand School of Music. During her time in America she studied with David Russell, Scott Tennant, Bill Kanengiser and Sergio Assad. Mr Moriarty completed his masters in 2003 at Massey Uni- versity, then headed to USC in Los Angeles. While there he studied with James Smith, and with LA Guitar Quartet members Scott Tennant and Bill Kanengiser. He has toured both nationally and internationally as a soloist and chamber musician. Studying under Bill Bower, Mr Hill completed his honours degree at Victoria University in 2001. In 2004 he travelled to Spain to study flamenco guitar and while there also gave performances in Italy and Portugal. He is a member of numerous ensembles. Ms Grice-Watterson was win- ner of the Lanchester Inter- national Guitar competition (England), and the Concorso Internazionale di Chitarra di Alessandria (Italy). She is per- haps best remembered for her stunning performance of Sevilla , by Albeniz, in the Julian Bream Masterclass recorded for BBC2 in 1978, which gained her world renown. In 1997 she emigrated to New Zealand and now lives in Wellington, where she teaches and performs with Trio con Brio, Duo Mosaica (violin/guitar) and most recently the NZGQ. Repertoire for the NZGQ s concert ranges from the fiery passion of Rimsky-Korsakov, the contrapuntal brilliance of Bach, the both winsome and toe tapping Celtic arrangements by Scott Tennant, to cutting edge home grown music by New Zea- land composers. As usual the concert is at 57 Wood St, Greytown (commenc- ing 3pm) and seats may be reserved by phoning 06 304 9025 (bus) or 304 9497 (home). Seats cost $20 (students $10) and all are welcome. Aldred talks global Ken Aldred: International policy and security analyst. Ken Aldred is an international policy and security analyst working from his home base in Napier. At 8pm on Wednesday, June 22, in the St Luke s Chapel, Worksop Rd, Masterton, he will be the guest of the New Zealand Institute of Inter- national Affairs. His speech topic will be: Experiences from Cold War to Global Warming -- Current Global Challenges, the latest in the Institute s series of talks dealing with present world instability. Mr Aldred is a former senior associate research fellow in defence studies and international policy at King s College London. In this capacity he co-ordinated a major research project on the European security implications of NATO enlargement and the prospects for a nuclear weapon-free zone in Central and Eastern Europe. His other work for the Centre for Defence Studies included arms con- trol, security sector reform in Bosnia, and the effects of a European defence identity/policy/capability on the Atlantic Alliance. He also worked on an assessment of defence diplomacy in conjunction with the defence min- istries of several North American, Western and Central European countries. Adding to his wide experience in the defence sector, Ken Aldred is an author and wrote extensively on security issues. His publications include Superpower in the Post-Cold War Era published by Macmillan Press, Global Security Study on NATO in South East Europe -- Enlargement by Stealth?, and the arms control chapter in the final Brassey s Defence Yearbook. He has lived in Hawke s Bay since early 2002, and has there joined a multitude of local civic organi- sations. Taking it all together, he brings to Masterton a comprehensive and authoritative view of one of the most important topics making up the headlines of 2011. This will be (another) fascinating evening, and the public are cordially invited to attend. A donation at the door will be much appreciated. Please call John Schnellenberg on 06 370 3425 if you have any questions.
