Kia ora tātou


NZ Music Month is in full swing. I was recently in Auckland and heard a Chopin Piano excerpt wafting through the Britomart train station at 8:30am in the morning. What are you doing for this month? Have a look at the great ideas and resources here. Also if you’re in Christchurch or Dunedin, there's a great exhibition of album art travelling the country. 


A reminder to RSVP if you are attending the MENZA AGM and workshops 19th June in AKL
