Biography:

New Zealand pianist Lorelle McNaughton carries with her a wide breadth of knowledge and experience after years of tertiary study in Aotearoa, Australia, and Europe. Lorelle has been particularly commended for her inspired interpretation of the music of the great Spanish composers and gave presentations at some of Australia's leading music conservatoriums.

Lorelle has performed extensively across the globe. She was recently invited to perform as a special guest at the 'Oceania' exhibition at London's Royal Academy of Arts, playing Michael Parekowhai's carved grand piano, He Korero Purakau mo Te Awanui o Te Motu: story of a New Zealand river.

Lorelle is also a founding member of successful piano quartet 'Estrella' which has given concerts throughout New Zealand and the United Kingdom. Estrella's debut album Tui, comprised of works by New Zealand composers for eight-hands, reached number one on Radio NZ's Classical Charts on its release.

Lorelle has recently returned to New Zealand ​and continues a successful career as a solo and collaborative pianist and music teacher.
