25 October 2016 - We are now able to announce that the 2017 Aroha String Quartet International String Academy will take place on 1-6 August. We are delighted that we'll be back at St Andrew’s on the Terrace which was such an ideal venue in 2016. We had a fantastic stock of cellists this year, and will work to building our ranks of violinists, violists and possibly a bass or two to even up the balance. Spread the word to all amateur and student musicians to look out for the call for applications next year.
