A selection of songs from Children's Music Awards

MUSIC BOX – A selection of songs from the Children's Music Awards 2014


*** FREE TO DOWNLOAD FOR A LIMITED TIME ***

APRA AMCOS New Zealand this week releases ‘Music Box 2014’ – a selection of songs from the New Zealand Children’s Music Awards.

The Children’s Music Awards celebrate the storytellers, the rhymers, the singers and groovers who write the songs that ignite a love for music in kiwi kids.

‘Music Box 2014’ celebrates the top songs from the genre and 15 tracks are free to download for the month of August from the APRA AMCOS website.

APRA head Anthony Healey says “Help us spread the word about world class Children’s Music produced here in New Zealand; by downloading a copy of Music Box for the little people in your life.”

The songs from Music Box will also feature on Kiwi Kids; The Radio Network (TRN)’s recently launched iHeartRadio station. Kiwi Kids is a station dedicated to playing music for children from the ages of two to six years. Both APRA AMCOS and iHeartRadio are excited about this station as it is a place where children, parents and teachers can enjoy music at no cost that is fun and offers variety.

Carolyn Luey, Head of iHeartRadio is particularly excited about the launch of Kiwi Kids Radio. “As a Mum and someone who loves music, I am excited that there is a station full of music with catchy rhymes. iHeartRadio's Kiwi Kids is a one stop shop for music for my children and for any family that never want to hear the 'Frozen' theme song again!” laughs Luey.

“The station is absolutely free and can be found at http://www.iheart.com/live/kiwi-kids-6611/.”

The 2014 Children’s Music Awards were presented live on What Now, Sunday 20th July. The winners are:

APRA Best Children’s Music Song of the Year - Anika Moa ‘Colours are Beautiful’

Recorded Music NZ Best Children’s Music Album (NZ Music Awards Tui) - Anika Moa ‘Songs For Bubbas’

Review: The Magic Flute - Magic Moments

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.
