Chile/Argentina Agents Visit New Zealand

Chile/Argentina Agents Visit New Zealand

Two education agents from Argentina and two from Chile are visiting New Zealand for eleven days in February. During their time here they will be visiting educational institutions in both the North and South Islands.

This visit will allow the participating institutions to form a close working relationship with the agents, and allow the agents to see first hand the quality of education and pastoral care that their clients can expect if they choose to come to New Zealand for their education.

Argentina and Chile are both emerging markets for New Zealand educators, and this visit will be an excellent opportunity to gauge the likely potential of these markets. Whilst numbers are small at this stage, improving economies and stronger interest in English as a language of study suggest that a number of South American countries will emerge as growing niche markets for New Zealand.

This visit is part of a comprehensive series by agents from many of New Zealand’s key education markets during 2004. These visits are all part of the joint Education New Zealand/New Zealand Trade & Enterprise ‘Five Steps Forward’ strategy that promotes New Zealand globally as an education destination.

Howard Davis Article: A Musical Axis - Brahms, Wagner, Sibelius

Brahms' warm and exquisitely subtle Symphony No. 3 in F major, Wagner's irrepressibly sentimental symphonic poem Siegfried Idyll, and Sibelius' chilling and immensely challenging Violin Concerto in D minor exemplify distinct stages of development in a tangled and convoluted series of skirmishes that came to define subsequent disputes about the nature of post-Romantic orchestral writing well into the following century.
