Andrew Beer - Baroque Voices
Violinist Andrew Beer has been described as a performer displaying "accuracy and subtle charisma" by the Boston Globe, and as a "musical gift" by the New York Times. He has performed extensively throughout North America, Europe, Asia and Australasia, and his performances have been broadcast widely. Beer also teaches both privately and at the University of Auckland. He frequently serves as a judge for competitions and scholarship funds throughout New Zealand, including the selection panel for the Michael Hill International Violin Competition. Humanitarian and outreach concerts have also played an important role in his musical output, and through such endeavours he was awarded a US Congressional Commendation in 2006. Beer, concertmaster for the APO, will play lead violin in the upcoming APO production of Baroque Voices, which will feature one of Bach's happiest works, Orchestral Suite No.3 in D Major - the second movement has become famously known as the 'Air on the G String'. Andrew Beer will play for Kim and discuss the upcoming performances.
