The Weekend Sun Competition

Stunningly brilliant New Zealand flutist Bridget Douglas performs solo for Tauranga Musica. Bridget is well known throughout New Zealand as principle flutist with the NZSO.

Dunedin-born Bridget also performs regularly as a soloist and chamber musician throughout Australasia and is frequently featured on Radio NZ Concert.

She is accompanied by pianist John van Buskirk, a graduate of the Eastman and Julliard Schools of Music. John is an experienced performer as a soloist and collaborator with singers and string players, as a chamber music player and in ensembles.
This happy collaboration follows on from their performances at the IRMT convention in Dunedin 2019 and a JS Bach and Sons recital at the University of Otago.

Bridget and John will perform pieces
by Bach, Poulenc, Bloch, Ritchie, Bolling and Chaminade.

They perform for Tauranga Musica at Baycourt on Wednesday, July 29, from 7pm.
