Fitzsimons, principal percussionist for Orchestra Wellington, has played with the NZSO since 1993 and his accomplishments range from guest soloist at a marimba festival in Portugal to performing with the Pink Floyd Experience. Tsuruta, a graduate from NZSM in Wellington, has many accolades to her name, including First Prize at the New Zealand National Concerto Competition and semifinalist at the International Marimba Competition in Salzburg.
