IBBY Conference in Auckland August 2016

Tironui senior students were delighted to be invited to play at the Gala night of the International Board on Books for Young People Congress in August. About 450 delegates from 60 countries attended this event in the Aotea Centre. Two Tironui groups were selected - our string ensemble from Octave Up, and our best wind players who provided a fanfare for the occasion.

Natalie Tantrum reported:I was so impressed with the way our students rose to the challenge on Saturday night, both in their playing and professionalism “off-stage". Congratulations to you, Lisa, and Katherine on such a beautifully-co-ordinated gig! I know Saturday night will be a special memory for all of us - a first for Tironui Music Trust, and a first for so many of our students!
