Tawa’s mu­si­cal ex­trav­a­ganza

Kapi-Mana News - - NEWS -

The an­nual Tawa Schools and Com­mu­nity Mu­sic Fes­ti­val is hap­pen­ing on Septem­ber 23.

Tawa Goes To Town is a vi­brant multi-me­dia show that will fea­ture 720 singers and dancers from Tawa’s six pri­mary schools, Tawa In­ter­me­di­ate, Tawa Col­lege and the Tawa com­mu­nity.

The pro­gramme fea­tures a va­ri­ety of songs and in­cludes ar­range­ments of clas­sics from the 1960s and 70s through to the mod­ern day. Some songs are choral num­bers and oth­ers are ac­com­pa­nied by dances, choralog­ra­phy, props and spe­cial ef­fects.

Tawa mu­si­cians Mur­ray Cameron and Jean Hollier will team up as mu­si­cal di­rec­tor and pro­ducer, and Sara Scott will over­see the dance and the­atri­cal num­bers. Martin Bur­dan has been the ‘‘ pi­ano man’’ since the fes­ti­val was first held, in the Michael Fowler Cen­tre in 1982.

The mu­si­cal back­ing is pro­vided by a combo of ex­pe­ri­enced in­stru­men­tal­ists and tal­ented, young stu­dents from Tawa Col­lege.
