The visiting Lazarus String Quartet perform in St Andrew's on The Terrace in Wellington. The quartet was established in 2007 by four University of Canterbury graduates. Winning the Pettman/ROSL scholarship opened doors for the group in Europe and they toured extensively. Now based in Berlin, the current members include founder cellist Alice Gott (born in Dunedin) as well as violinists Mayumi Kanagawa (USA/Japan) and Jos Jonker (The Netherlands), and violist Albin Uusijärvi (Sweden).
