Dance For Life 2002

Dance For Life 2002

Saturday 30 November @ Phoenix
Once again this year, the Wellington Hospitality industry and its crew are coming together to party - to offer the public both an awesome night out and the chance to contribute to the AIDs crisis in Malawai.

On Nov 30th UNICEF New Zealand will be holding their second Dance Party to raise funds for their HIV/Aids awareness programs and famine relief efforts in Malawi.

Last years 'Dance For Life' raised almost $15,000 from an 800 person turnout. This year the target is $20,000 to go towards HIV/AIDS assistance in Malawi with emphasis on the placement of orphaned children in foster care. We are working with a New Zealand organisation Open Home Foundation International, using their expertise in this area working with UNICEF in Malawi.

UNICEF is a non-governmental, non-profit, non-religious based charity organization aimed at the fundamental welfare of the international child. For more information please go to>

Again this year most, if not all time, effort, production and promotion has been donated for the cause so as to maximize our donation.
Our special guest DJ who has as well donated his time will be DJ Phil Smart (Aus) voted Australasian DJ of the year 2000.

Bryce C (Firm Records, Sandwiches)

Howard Davis Article: A Musical Axis - Brahms, Wagner, Sibelius

Brahms' warm and exquisitely subtle Symphony No. 3 in F major, Wagner's irrepressibly sentimental symphonic poem Siegfried Idyll, and Sibelius' chilling and immensely challenging Violin Concerto in D minor exemplify distinct stages of development in a tangled and convoluted series of skirmishes that came to define subsequent disputes about the nature of post-Romantic orchestral writing well into the following century.

Scoop Review Of Books: A Pale Ghost Writer

Reviewed by Ruth Brassington, Richard Flanagan's new novel is about a novelist hastily ghost-writing the biography of a crook about to go to trial. The reader is kept on a cliff-edge, as the narrator tries to get blood out of his stone man. More>>
