' I hope to inspire and be inspired by other like-minded musicians in the orchestra. ' Cellist Davina Shum A young cellist is look- ing forward to immers- ing herself in the London music scene thanks to a scholarship allowing her to study and perform in the Brit- ish capital. Talented instrumen- talist Davina Shum is winging her way to the UK this week after receiving the Elman Poole Music Scholarship for 2013. The annual award is funded by Dr Elman Poole for an up-and- coming musicians to train with the renowned Southbank Sinfonia orchestra in London. I hope to inspire and be inspired by other like-minded musicians in the orchestra,'' Ms Shum says. Working in such a close intimate group will develop me musi- cally because of the intensity and frequency of new repertoire from all different genres. In a way, we will be thrown' into the pro- fession, which is such a valuable and practical learning experience,'' she says. Ms Shum was educated at Diocesan School for Girls in Epsom and after gradu- ating in 2004 she went on to obtain a bachelor of music from the Uni- versity of Auckland. Most recently she studied at Sydney's Conservatorium of Music where she was awarded her master of music degree in 2011. Throughout her edu- cation she has played in orchestras in both New Zealand and Australia. Ms Shum says play- ing with the reputable Southbank Sinfonia will be greatly beneficial to her musical career. The orchestra of young professionals has been described by The Times as a dashing ensemble who play with exhilarating fizz''. It is Britain's leading orchestral academy and is known for providing a spring-board for young players. I have the chance to perform in London, across the UK and Europe,'' Ms Shum says. The opportunities presented will open so many doors for me musically, educationally and professionally.'' The Elman Poole Music Scholarship was established in 2007 by Dr Poole to enable young musicians to gain experience abroad and contribute to the devel- opment of music in New Zealand.

Baby penguins Kelly Tarlton's Sea Life Aquarium has new attractions finding their feet in the form of seven gentoo penguins born late last month. The chicks hatched from eggs incubated by both parents for about 35 days and took up to 48 hours to emerge from their shells. They brought the number of birds hatched during the aquarium's 2012 breeding programme to 10 after the arrival of three king penguins last year.
