Having been at the helm of the Tironui Music Trust since its inception in 2005, Peter Hubscher has decided that from the beginning of 2019 the time is right for a new Chairperson to lead the Trust. During his 13 years of leadership the programme has expanded steadily, and is now gaining recognition in the wider world of music and education. Peter will continue as Treasurer, and both Peter and Pam, co-founder and Secretary, will remain on the Board.

Justine Cormack, previously violinist for NZTrio and now a Creative Performance Coach and freelance violinist, has accepted the role of Chairperson. As our new leader she will bring fresh perspectives and ideas which will undoubtedly further stimulate all those involve in the Trust’s work. All her fellow Trustees look forward to Justine taking over this new role in January 2019.
