Mr Hand is the guest pianist for the choir’s annual concert, Sweet Was The Song, at All Saints Church this Sunday. When he isn’t practising on the keys, the 48-year-old works as the international director of Lutheran Mideast Development. The expat American’s career sees him travelling to the Mid- dle East for three weeks about nine times a year, implementing job development programmes, emergency relief, and scholar- ships for young disadvantaged women. “The development work is focused now on Kurdish refu- gees primarily,” Mr Hand told the Times. “The worst situations for them are in Turkey these days. It depends on the political situa- tion where the most need is.” His interest in the Middle East and its politics began as a 16-year- old, when after studying the piano seriously at North Caro- lina School of Arts, he moved to a kibbutz farm in Israel. “It was right on the border, so we saw a lot of action,” he says. “I started work with the Kurds in the 1980s when Saddam Hus- sein gassed the Kurdish popula- tion at Halabja. “I was one of the frst people on the scene and debriefed the victims. “In the frst Gulf War, I got trapped on the Iraq side of the border. That was a bit dicey. I’ve been within 100-feet [30-metres] of a car bomb.” His initial travels meant a 15-year break from the piano. But since reacquainting with his talent, he’s shared the stage with accomplished players such as Tchaikovsky competition win- ner Andre Laplante and studied with world piano gold medallist Igor Resnianski. The father-of-two has lived in Howick since 2010 and collabo- rated with the choir’s conductor Neil Guyan since meeting not long after. “As well as accompanying some of the choir items, Matthew will present a piano bracket with a Christmas favour, including an excerpt from Tchaikovsky’s Nut- cracker ballet,” says Mr Guyan. The concert will feature mad- rigals, carols, folk songs and motets sung by the 28-member choir, which is in its frst year at Edgewater College Commu- nity Education, after the closure of Pakuranga College’s evening classes. “The madrigal choir was unwilling to give up too easily,” says Mr Guyan. “It’s business as usual.” n Sweet Was The Song is at 2pm this Sunday at All Saints Church, Selwyn Road, Howick. Entry costs $10, and $8 for senior citi- zens and students.
