Donald Armstrong to replace Douglas Beilman at Adam Festival

26 January 2015 / News

Due to an injury to his finger, Second Violinist Douglas Beilman will be unable to play at the upcoming Adam Chamber Music Festival in Nelson. His replacement will be Donald Armstrong, Associate Concertmaster of the New Zealand Symphony Orchestra, who filled in for First Violinist Helene Pohl when she too suffered an injury in 2013. Donald says he’s absolutely delighted to be performing again with his great friends and colleagues and particularly excited by the repertoire he’ll be playing, which ranges from Dvořák, Franck, Shostakovich and Schoenberg through to Douglas Lilburn, Jack Body, Chris Watson and Louise Webster. The festival opens this Thursday 29 January and runs until Saturday 7 February.
