Violinist and composer Fiona Pears started performing as a soloist with orchestras at the age of twelve. Now based in both New Zealand and London, she has forged a career as an international soloist and recording artist and we are lucky to be having her perform at Ingham's Lazy Sundays this year.

Her album Feeling features some of Fiona’s most beautiful compositions to date. As with all of her pieces, people and places have influenced their creation. On the liner notes of the album Fiona says, “All of my compositions have stories. I don’t think I would be able to write if it was not for the stunning people in my life and also the wonderful opportunities I have had to travel to so many interesting places around the world.”

Since being in the UK, Fiona has composed and arranged the music for her performance with the Royal Liverpool Philharmonic orchestra and has gone on to write and arrange music for recording artists such as Hayley Westenra, Libera, Aled Jones and Lee Mead. In recent years Fiona has toured extensively and has performed and recorded with artists such as Dave Dobbyn, Bic Runga, Heather Nova and the Christchurch Symphony Orchestra.
