Virtuoso Strings

From Jesse Mulligan, 1–4pm, 1:23 pm on 30 June 2017

The Virtuoso Strings Charitable Trust provides free instruments and tuition to students at low decile schools in Porirua. Its Strings Orchestra is open to any member of the public, and is made up of more than 160 students from 11 different decile one and decile two schools.

The kids have the opportunity to perform on a national stage, and have an upcoming trip to Auckland planned, but they need help to get there. Director of the trust, Liz Sneyd, explains.
