Musicnet Summary to 1 Feb 2019

Kia ora tātou


Over the last week I’ve seen more and more activity on the Musicnet list, so it seems the holidays are over! I do hope you have all had a rest, and refresh.


There have been a large number of new members to the Musicnet list. Welcome to Christine, Emma, Daniel, Nicola, Kate, Lee, Damian, Simon, Tom, Nathan, Jodi, Lucy, ABby, Tak, Joe, Lauren and Cat. My top tip is to make an email rule to automatically put all of the Musicnet emails into a folder, so you can manage the volume.


Changes to the Musicnet server and platform mean that you cannot view any of the messages online or the the archives without logging in with your email and password. They are no-longer public. The archives have also been moved to here.  Any issues do get in touch.


This email is a selective summary of the activity over the end of December and last week. Sit back with a cup of tea and have a read.
