Proceeds From Official NZ Music Month 2005 T-Shirts Donated

In May of this year the NZ Music Month Committee teamed up with Hallensteins to make the official NZ Music Month 2005 T-shirt available for sale for the first ever time. This was a highly successful campaign which saw thousands of New Zealanders showing their support for the annual promotion of local music. The proceeds earned by the Committee came to over $10,000 and are being donated to two music-based charities, the Raukatauri Music Therapy Trust and the Music Education Trust of Aotearoa NZ (METANZ).

The Raukatauri Music Therapy Trust owns and operates the Raukatauri Music Therapy Centre, where the main approach to music therapy is based on the internationally renowned Nordoff-Robbins approach emphasising improvisation and other creative techniques. This approach to music therapy is grounded in the belief that all people can respond to music - no matter what the circumstances. Operating a sliding scale of fees for sessions depending on client's means and what they can afford, the Centre is designed to make the new music therapy opportunity accessible within the community. Tonight at the 2nd Raukatauri Music Therapy Trust annual fundraiser a cheque for $8,000 will be presented on behalf of the NZ Music Month Committee.

METANZ is a trust whose mission is to improve the quality and availability of music education. It promotes and advocates the importance of education in music, and education through music, to groups and individuals, and supports actions by others aimed at promoting and advocating music within arts education in Aotearoa New Zealand. METANZ will be receiving the remainder of the proceeds from T-Shirt sales as a donation from the NZ Music Month Committee.

“It was the public’s passion for NZ Music that enabled us to support these organisations.” says NZ Music Month Chairperson Anthony Healey of APRA “The NZ Music Month Committee is very pleased to be able to support these two charities and would like to thank Hallensteins - and every member of the public who purchased a T-Shirt – for making this support possible.”

Howard Davis: Joel Coen's Monochromatic Macbeth

The Bard of Avon may well be smirking up the sleeves of his lace doublet at the irony of Will Smith's Oscar debacle, but now that the initial furore has dissipated, it's worth revisiting the movie for which Denzel Washington was also nominated. More>>

Howard Davis: Kenneth Branagh’s Black & White Belfast

Branagh has assembled a wonderful cast, including Ciarán Hinds, a gently formidable actor who well deserves his Oscar nomination, and Judi Dench, who steals every scene she’s in. More>>


Howard Davis: Dennis Villeneuve’s Dune - A Brief History

So many elements of Herbert’s novel have since become tropes of popular SciFi that Villeneuve’s film sometimes seems deceptively derivative. What makes all this nonsense essential viewing is his astonishing visual sensibility. More>>


Howard Davis: Jill Trevelyan's Rita Angus

Although Angus has become one of Aotearoa’s best-loved painters, the story of her life remained little known and poorly understood before Jill Trevelyan's acclaimed and revelatory biography, which has been republished by Te Papa press. More>>
