Corrina Connor is a musician, teacher and researcher, so constitutes an alarming ‘triple threat’. She trained as a violinist and cellist, and, more recently, as a baroque cellist. She teaches violin, cello, piano, and music theory/musicianship. Already in possession of a BMus (Hons) from Wellington’s Victoria University and an MPhil in Musicology and Performance from Oxford University, she is in the process of completing her degree hat-trick with a Ph.D. She also writes and conducts research on a wide range of artistic, historical and musical subjects, and she frequently swims over absurdly long distances.
Miss Corrina Connor is a most dangerous creature. Not only does she play beautifully, but she also trains others in the dark arts of cello, violin, pianoforte and, most sinister of all, ‘music theory’. As if that were not enough, she is also in the midst of a ‘Ph.D.’ and insists upon putting her not inconsiderable research skills to use on the most noble of projects. Perhaps most worrying of all is her penchant for swimming in the manner of a siren. We have urged her to lie down and rest for several months, but she is incorrigible.
