Exciting new partnership for Wynn Williams

Wynn Williams is very excited to announce its partnership with the New Zealand String Quartet (NZSQ). Partner and Board member, Jeremy Johnson said "this is a fabulous opportunity for the firm to be involved with a charitable organisation which shares values and a culture similar to that of our own". The partnership will enable Wynn Williams to help support the wonderful work of the NZSQ and the continued delivery of their music to New Zealand and the rest of the world.

As a charitable trust, the NZSQ works with children on specialist string programmes to assist their communities with affecting social change. The Quartet coach outstanding young musicians at their annual Adam Summer School in Nelson, and play a vital role in developing the next generation of string musicians as the Quartet in Residence at Victoria University's New Zealand School of Music.

Formed in 1987, the NZSQ is New Zealand's leading chamber ensemble. It is highly respected and popular not just in New Zealand, but also internationally for its versatility and the imagination of its programmes. The Quartet is made up of Helen Pohl (Violin), Monique Lapins (Violin), Gillian Ansell (Viola) and Rolf Gjelsten (Cello). Together they perform over 60 concerts in New Zealand per year, plus international concerts across Europe, North America, and North East Asia.
