An­nual sum­mer con­cert series needs mu­sos

The Tribune (NZ) - - YOUR PAPER, YOUR PLACE - RICHARD MAYS

The sounds of the week­end’s Swampfest are still res­onat­ing, but al­ready the call is out for the next cel­e­bra­tion of lo­cal mu­sic.

Ac­cess Ra­dio is want­ing Manawatu mu­si­cians to sign on for the an­nual Sounds of Sum­mer al­fresco con­cert series.

Kick­ing off in the new year for the fifth time, Palmer­ston North’s free Es­planade Sun­day con­certs will run for five weeks from Sun­day, Jan­uary 15.

In Fe­bru­ary, the Sun­day show­case segues into the eighth an­nual daily lunchtime con­certs in The Square.

With 30 va­cant slots to fill over the five three-hour Sun­day shows, and a week of 90-minute lunchtime pro­grammes, Ac­cess Ra­dio’s Fraser Greig is look­ing for so­los, duos, bands, choirs, en­sem­bles and com­mu­nity groups.

‘‘We’re keen to help show­case the tal­ent and di­ver­sity that Manawatu of­fers. Each con­cert will – hope­fully – demon­strate dif­fer­ent cul­tures, ages and gen­res.’’

Greig said the sum­mer con­certs of­fered live op­por­tu­ni­ties for new and sea­soned per­form­ers alike.

Ap­pli­ca­tions and fur­ther info for the 2017 Sounds of Sum­mer con­certs can be found at ac­cess­man­awatu.co.nz/sos, info@ac­cess­man­awatu.co.nz, and 357 9340.
