More free concerts

There are a number of free concerts coming up soon that sound good. I plan to go to at least some of them, perhaps you would like to join me? Here:

This Thursday, 2009-02-05, the New Zealand Symphony Orchestra are playing with Tina Cross at Frank Kitts Park as part of the Starry Nights Concert Series. It sounds like they are doing a range of covers and so on. See the programme at the link for more information.

On Wednesday 11th February from 6:30 pm the NZSO are playing for free again, this time at the Michael Fowler Centre. Apparently “the concert features a new commission by New Zealand composer Anthony Ritchie French Overture, the delightfully tuneful and jolly Haydn Cello Concerto in C major and to finish — Beethoven’s Symphony No 4 — one of the most exhilarating of Beethoven’s nine symphonies“. I may not be able to make this one unfortunately, but it sounds good nonetheless.

On Friday 20th Thursday 19th February, Fur Patrol are playing at Frank Kitts Park (also part of the Starry Nights Concert Series). This one I particularly want to go to, so I hope that I can.

So, does anyone want to join me? At least for the first and last of those I listed above.

  1. Oops. The Fur Patrol concert is on Thursday, not Friday. Sorry for any confusion. I still intend to go though; would anyone care to join me?
