Tararua Shield Hits Wellington

The Tararua Shield competition moves into the second round this weekend with fixtures taking place in Wellington.

Wellington City will host Wairarapa at Kilbirnie Park on Sunday and the hosts will be looking to get their campaign underway after their match was abandoned against Manawatu earlier this month. The City bowlers started strongly to have Manawatu on the ropes at 45-5 but the weather eventually kicked in forcing the game to be called off. City has made a couple of changes for their match against Wairarapa which features the inclusion of Johnsonville bowler Seth Rance. Rance is playing his first season in Wellington and will line up against his former team, that he helped earn a Hawke Cup Challenge last season.

Hutt Valley has named an unchanged line up for their match against Manawatu after beating Wairarapa by 216 runs in their first game. The Hutt boys currently lead the competition and will be looking to secure a finals spot with a win this weekend. A number of the Hutt players are in reasonable form, with New Zealand Under 19 player Henry Walsh following up his 81 ball 123 against Wairarapa with a century for Taita in club cricket.

Both games start at 10:30am and the forecast looks promising for a good day’s cricket.

Max Rashbrooke: Review - The NZSO And Nature

This was a lovely, varied concert with an obvious theme based on the natural world. It kicked off with Mendelssohn's sparkling Hebrides Overture, which had a wonderfully taut spring right from the start, and great colour from the woodwinds, especially the clarinets. More>>

Gordon Campbell: On Chuck Berry (And James Comey, And Bill English)

Back when many people were still treating rock’n’roll as a passing fad – was calypso going to be the new thing? – Chuck Berry knew that it had changed popular music forever. What is even more astonishing is that this 30-ish black r&b musician from a middle class family in St Louis could manage to recreate the world of white teenagers, at a time when the very notion of a “teenager” had just been invented.

Howard Davis Review:
The Baroque Fusion Of L'arpeggiata

Named after a toccata by German composer Girolamo Kapsberger, L'Arpeggiata produces its unmistakable sonority mainly from the resonance of plucked strings, creating a tightly-woven acoustic texture that is both idiosyncratic and immediately identifiable. Director Christina Pluhar engenders this distinctive tonality associated with the ensemble she founded in 2000 by inviting musicians and vocalists from around the world to collaborate on specific projects illuminated by her musicological research.
