Baby Pops “Mystery and Mayhem”

Baby Pops “Mystery and Mayhem”

Orchestra Wellington
Marc Taddei, conductor
Thomas Goss, presenter

Orchestra Wellington’s latest Baby Pops needs help from its young audience members.

The new show features a mystery and all the children will have to help him solve it, says Baby Pops presenter Thomas Goss.

Goss, who is the orchestra’s Education Composer in Residence, will become the Chief Musical Investigator for this show.

“We’ll have to investigate some very shady characters in the orchestra… the bassoons!” Goss says. “What do they get up to, hidden in the middle of the orchestra like that? Or the trombones - those trombones sitting up the back are always laughing - what’s up with that? They look guilty to me!”

Expect a very big surprise at the beginning of the concert, followed by great TV and movie themes such as Mission Impossible, James Bond, Get Smart and the Pink Panther theme as Goss and the audience try to solve the mystery.

As usual the fun includes the opportunity to sing along with some well-known favourites such as The Cat Came Back, and this time, there’s also a dance contest!

The show is suitable for children aged two to six and lasts one hour.

When Evening Shadows Fall is one of four works by Goldie included in a sale of Important and Rare Art at the International Art Centre in Parnell on November 28. Goldie painted only a handful of landscapes, concentrating mainly on indigenous portraits, which earned him a global reputation as NZ’s finest painter of respected Māori elders (kaumātua). More

Mark Stocker: History Spurned - The Arrival Of Abel Tasman In New Zealand

On the face of it, Everhardus Koster's exceptional genre painting The Arrival of Abel Tasman in New Zealand should have immense appeal. It cannot find a buyer, however, not because of any aesthetic defects, but because of its subject matter and the fate of the Māori it depicts. More
