Pianist Anna Maksymova and cellist Tomas Hurnik will return to Rangiora's Chamber Gallery for a free performance this Sunday.

Anna performed in the Chamber Gallery twice last year, as a duo with her father, violinist Valeriy Maksymova, and also as a guest with the Tres Cordes Piano Quartet.

Tomas is also a member of the Tres Cordes Piano Quartet and the Tres Cordes String Trio, so both are familiar with the gallery and are audience favourites.

The concert begins at 2pm. It is the Waimakariri Community Arts Council's final free Sunday concert for the season this year.
