JAC'S Trading Co. Sings a Song for Vivian and Sophie Waller

JAC’s Trading Co. at The Plaza, Whangaparaoa recently held a karaoke night raising funds for Vivian and Sophie Waller.

The karaoke night was a great success, raising $600 from locals singing their hearts out for a great cause.

Those wanting to belt out their favourite song were asked for a gold coin donation, and JAC’s Trading Co. donated $1 from every pint of beer and large glass of wine sold on the night.

Jez Cameron, Director of JAC’s Trading Co. says that all the locals have rallied behind this special family and he was pleased that they could too. “It’s heartbreaking to hear what this young family is going through, and it’s important in a community like Whangaparaoa that we all support each other through tough times”.

The money raised is going directly to the family. Vivian has created a bucket list of things she would like her little girl to achieve in life and all proceeds raised through events in the community and their online Givealittle fundraising page will be used by Sophie and her family to fulfill her mother’s wishes.

Max Rashbrooke: Mozart’s The Magic Flute is an extraordinary tale, blending a story of great solemnity, of elegant music and Masonic virtue overcoming hatred and discord, with elements of extreme silliness and pure fantasy. .. More>>

NZSO Review: Stephen Hough Is Perfection-Plus

He took risks, and leant into the music when required. But you also felt that every moment of his playing made sense in the wider picture of the piece. Playing alongside him, the NZSO were wonderful as ever, and their guest conductor, Gustavo Gimeno, coaxed from them a slightly darker, edgier sound than I’m used to hearing. More>>

Howard Davis Review: King Lear At Circa

In order to celebrate it's 40th birthday, it is perhaps fitting that Circa Theatre should pick a production of 'King Lear,' since it's also somewhat fortuitously Shakespeare's 400th anniversary. If some of the more cerebral poetry is lost in Michael Hurst's streamlined, full throttle production, it's more than made up for by plenty of lascivious violence designed to entertain the groundlings.
