Lorelle McNaughton carries with her a wealth of knowledge and experience after years of tertiary study in Aotearoa, Australia, and Europe. She has performed extensively across the globe and was recently invited to perform as special guest at the ‘Oceania’ Exhibition at the Royal Academy of Arts in London, playing Michael Parekowhai’s carved grand piano He Korero Purakau mo Te Awanui o Te Motu: story of a New Zealand river.
Having performed a wide range of repertoire throughout her career, Lorelle has been particularly commended for her inspired interpretation of the music of the great Spanish composers, and has been invited to give presentations at some of Australia’s leading music conservatoriums. Lorelle is also a founding member of successful piano quartet ‘Estrella’ which has given concerts throughout New Zealand and the UK, and whose debut album Tui, comprised of works by NZ composers for eight-hands, reached No.1 on the RadioNZ Classical Charts on its release.
After almost ten years living abroad, Lorelle has recently returned to New Zealand where she is teaching music and continuing a successful career as a solo and collaborative pianist.
This concert is sponsored by Professor Jack Richards
