Chamber Music New Zealand‘s CEO Euan Murdoch is a 2013 Fellow of the WINSTON CHURCHILL MEMORIAL TRUST. For his fellowship Euan is spending two months with thought-leaders in UK and USA gaining new insights and fresh perspectives for artist and audience development.
Over 60 days he’ll meet with artists, agents, educators, entrepreneurs and funders, attend lots of performances, and visit institutions including the iconic chamber music venues Wigmore and Carnegie Halls and tertiary music schools such as the Guildhall in London, the Royal Conservatoire of Scotland in Glasgow, and both Juilliard and Mannes in New York.
Follow Euan’s journey abroad through his blog posts here. There’ll be regular insights from him, photos and special guest posts on the exciting activities and initiatives taking place abroad in the chamber music world.
We’re keen to hear your thoughts on the experiences and ideas that Euan encounters so be sure to add your comments or email us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Get ready to go Around the World in 60 Days with Chamber Music New Zealand.
Euan Murdoch’s WINSTON CHURCHILL MEMORIAL TRUST Fellowship Project
This project has been made possible thanks to a three-way funding partnership between the Winston Churchill Memorial Trust (through Department of Internal Affairs), Chamber Music New Zealand (major funder Creative New Zealand) and several major gifts from private donors (through CMNZ’s fundraising programme Encore). If you’d like to support this research or help support the Chamber Music New Zealand you can donate online www.chambermusic.co.nz/support-us or call Jenni Hall on +64 4 802 0755.
As well as producing this blog with posts from guests and comments from you, a final research report will be published by mid-year on www.communitymatters.govt.nz
This will form the basis of a keynote address and clinic at the 2014 national conference of the Institute of Registered Music Teachers in New Plymouth.
The purpose of this project is: Deepening New Zealanders’ engagement in the Arts.
