Just who is this Alison Stewart person anyway...?
At present I am Director of Music at Huntley School in Marton, New Zealand. Huntley is a preparatory school for boys aged from 8½ years to 13 years. It is an independent boarding school with Anglican affiliation. Duties include teaching music and divinity to all levels, training three choirs, orchestra and administering the music department with its five itinerant teachers. I also have responsibility for the School Chapel with chapel services four times a week, the annual Music Concert, Good Friday Service, Carol Services and other special musical occasions.
The choir often has trips away to sing in other parts of the country as well as singing at the local old folks home.
I am also assistant conductor and accompanist for two adult choirs - the Palmerston North Choral Society which specialises in larger works, such as St Matthew and St John Passions, Messiah, Elijah, Rutter's Requiem, etc and the Palmerston North Ambassador Choir which sang at the International Choir Festival at Missoula, Montana and in Salt Lake City, in July 1996.
Another of my interests is jazz and I play piano in an 8 piece jazz group. It has four vocalists and four instrumentalists and has a Manhattan Transfer sound. We perform at many venues.
