Arna Morton

As Principal 2nd Violin of the Christchurch Symphony Orchestra, Arna Morton is thrilled to be home performing for New Zealand audiences after acquiring her PhD in Violin Performance at the University of Melbourne, following the completion of both Bachelor and Master of Musical Arts degrees at the New Zealand School of Music under the tutelage of Associate Professor and NZSQ first violin, Helene Pohl.

Alongside her role in CSO, Arna also performs in Ōtautahi’s Arvida Quartet and is a member of the internationally-acclaimed Morton Trio, performing regularly alongside her husband and horn player, Alex Morton, and fellow-Kiwi pianist, Liam Wooding. In 2019, The Morton Trio toured the United Kingdom with the Royal-Overseas League, performing at esteemed venues such as St Martin’s in the Fields and St James Piccadilly, as well as a New Zealand tour with Chamber Music New Zealand. Arna is also a passionate music educator, teaching violin and performance artistry through Morton Music: the Christchurch-central music studio she co-runs with her husband, Alex.
