New Foundation Trustee Announced
Posted on 18 May 2021
Dame Kiri Te Kanawa has announced the appointment of Robert Wiremu as a new trustee for the Kiri Te Kanawa Foundation.
“I have enjoyed an association with Robert that spans more than 20 years so I was delighted when he accepted the invitation to join our dedicated and highly regarded Trustees and we know that his knowledge, expertise and holistic approach will be invaluable in our support of young New Zealand opera singers, particularly as the world we are now experiencing is and will continue to be a "moving feast" for these singers.
Well known in music circles as an experienced baritone, chorister, soloist and recording artist Robert is in constant demand as a teacher, repertoire coach, vocal consultant, adjudicator and artistic advisor – all the skills that will be so necessary in his new trustee role.
I’m really looking forward to working with him - he joins a marvellous group of trustees all with professional experience and expertise in a wide range of related areas. Most of whom have been with me since the Foundation was created in 2004.”
