Cathy Irons

Cathy Irons played in the Kwa-Zulu Natal Philharmonic Orchestra in South Africa before immigrating to Christchurch in 1997. She is currently a first violinist and the Outreach and Education Co-ordinator for the Christchurch Symphony Orchestra. She has broadcast on South African Radio and TV, Radio NZ Concert, Plains FM and CTV and regularly performs recitals and chamber music concerts throughout NZ.

Her playing has been described by critics as “jaw-dropping, her mastery and her lovely instrument defying any other description,” “sonic fireworks that dazzled all with their brilliance” and “an empathetic and expressive performer.” Another string to her bow, is her cross-over jazz playing in her group, The Classical Jazz Quartet which played for the NZ Jazz and Blues Festival this year.

In this workshop, Alex and Cathy will discuss compositional techniques for violin.
