Music for flute, violin, viola, guitar and cello feature at the Globe Sunday Matinee Concert for June.
The colourful line-up of instruments will play an equally colourful line-up of pieces.
Guitarist Cristian Huenuqueo and cellist Sasha Routh have invited flute player Diana Neild and her daughter Sylvia Neild, on violin and viola, to join them in their return to the Globe.
Routh was born in London and educated in Bristol. She moved to New Zealand in 2002 to take up the post of itinerant teacher of strings at high schools in Palmerston North and Feilding.

Diana Neild plays regularly in Trio Bella, functions band Moxy, saxophone quartet Palmy Sweethearts, and with her own family. She is a published children's writer and enjoys all things creative – including making up words.
From Palmerston North, Sylvia Neild graduated from Waikato University in 2018 with a Bachelor in Music, majoring in classical performance viola.
