Chamber Group

This year Christchurch Girls’ High School has three main chamber groups.

They are the Milhaud Trio (Yuchen Luo Violin, Clemency van Rij Violin and Jean Yu Lim Piano), Mendelssohn Trio (YouRim Kang Clarinet, Ruby Lange Clarinet and Ryoka Miyake Piano) and Dring Trio (Izzy Clarke Flute, Sarah Bealing Bassoon). These groups are made up of girls from different year levels and skill levels that cater to their abilities, all performances involve dedicated rehearsal at least once a week. All students have gained great experiences playing in the chamber group and it is definitely something enjoyable.

This year the Milhaud Trio and Mendelssohn Trio competed in the New Zealand Chamber Group Competition and have performed incredibly well which they should be very proud of themselves. All three groups were also performed very well in the CGHS Mid-Winter Music Concert which they worked extremely hard during the year. A massive thank you to our chamber music tutors Mr. Langdon and Philippa Lodge who have helped all the students so much with all the performances and have discovered the potential of performance skills in each one of us.
