Composer Salina Fisher must be running out of room on her mantelpiece to hold all the awards she's won, and she's still only in her early 20s. She won the NZSO Todd Young Composer award in both 2013 and 2014. She's the 2015 Auckland Philharmonia Rising Star and her commission for the Mimosa Ensemble is about to be heard throughout the country. When Salina’s not writing new music she's performing as a violinist, as a member of the National Youth Orchestra and a casual player in the New Zealand Symphony Orchestra. The NZSO Youth Orchestra is about to premiere her latest work, Rainphase.
