Meet The NZSO At Te Papa - Saturday 22 November

17 November 2003


The New Zealand Symphony Orchestra will be at Te Papa from 10am this Saturday, hosting workshops and giving free instrumental performances. The day concludes with a lively family concert given by the full orchestra at 3pm.

Throughout the day, sections of the orchestra will perform in workshops at various locations around Te Papa. Individual musicians and sections will demonstrate and answer questions about their instruments, and in some cases visitors can have a go on an instrument themselves.

Sections coming to Te Papa include percussion, strings, woodwind flutes and harps and the NZ Brass Quintet, who will perform a selection of brass favourites including Tuba Tiger Rag.

The day ends with a concert of Russian symphonic music in the Wellington Foyer, conducted by Hamish McKeich, the NZSO's recently appointed Associate Conductor. ENDS

Howard Davis: Review - 'I, Daniel Blake' - Ken Loach's Bleak Masterpiece

'I, Daniel Blake' is a bleak masterpiece, a chilling and moving story of two people striking up an unlikely friendship under extremely adverse circumstances. It is both a polemical indictment of a faceless benefits bureaucracy that strips claimants of their humanity by reducing them to mere numbers, and a celebration of the decency and compassion of ordinary people who look out for one another when the state has abandoned them.
