COVER: Miss Kiri Te Kanawa, a talented Auckland soprano who has had a remarkable series of successes in competition events, was this year's winner of the John Court Aria contest at the Auckland Competitions.

Miss Te Kanawa, who is aged 20, is studying singing on a Maori Education Foundation scholarship. She hopes to compete in next year's Australian Sun Aria contest, and later on to study overseas.

She has a minor role in the newly-released New Zealand film, ‘Runaway’.
