Montana Poetry Day

Friday 20th July

The motivation behind all of this is to prove that N.Z Poetry is relevant, contemporary, engaging, humorous and entertaining and to break down some of the stereotypes and misconceptions about Poetry

I will finish with a saying I like "We all create Poetry just the Poets choose to express it "

At the Temple

@ the Temple from 8pm Special Guests Graham Brazier and comedian Jan Maree along with Bob Orr, Olwyn Stewart, David Suter, Paddy Hoban, Olivia Macassey, Ant Horn, Will Christie and Noodle String will perform, read and celebrate Poetry

Also there is a Poetry Slam (3 min or less) with $ 100 first prize The Slam is judged on audience response

Slam Poetry while new to N.Z, is popular in many parts of the world

To finish we have the entertainment of rockabilly band All Torn Up (www.temple.co.nz/All_Torn_Up.htm)

The night at the Temple is free as well as the slam to enter

Gustav Mahler’s Seventh Symphony may be one of the least well-known of its ilk, but Edo de Waart and the New Zealand Symphony Orchestra made a compelling case for a reassessment. They showed us a work of immense variety, surprising contrast and delicate shades of light and dark. More>>
