The past few years we’ve enjoyed concerts with top student musicians from the University of Auckland’s Classical Performance degree. This year is no different. Our August Live @ Five Classical Series welcomes Kaha Trio – Madeleine Xiao (piano), Jesse Oh (violin), and Damon Herlihy-O’Brien (cello).
The trio met last year through the Chiron Group of music schools and they perform regularly across Auckland and its wider regions. This year they were fortunate enough to become members of the Auckland Philharmonia Orchestra’s Aspiring Musicians program.
Their programme is a treat of solo and trio pieces. A varied and enjoyable concert.

Beethoven – Piano Sonata No.24 in F-sharp major (Jesse)
