Final Midday Concert for 2020

Chris Marshall Reporter from Taupō Times

Big band jazz concludes the midday concert series for the year in St Andrew’s Anglican Church.
The 15 member Great Lake Big Band last performed in Palmerston North in early November as part of the Manawatu Jazz festival and director Rowan Bolley was keen to return there next year as part of the Big Band Bash.
In the meantime local supporters could expect some swing favourites and a few more recent chart purchases.

As usual, said Bolley, there would be a couple of new and old Christmas tunes on Friday, December 4.

The hour long concert at 12 noon is $10 for adults, children and students free.

The midday concert series then takes a break until March 5, 2021.

For further information contact organisers Elizabeth Marshall (3789296), Tracey Lidington (0272409228), or see the facebook page Midday Concert for details.

A new way to live

Ryman Healthcare Limited

It’s a time for fine-tuning your skills and pushing the boundaries, catching up with your mates and heading off on new adventures at the drop of a hat! No, we’re not talking about your 20s, we’re talking about your retirement.

Ross’ retirement saw the beginning of his musical journey where his passion quickly evolved from making music, to crafting guitars. It all started when Ross and some mates joined a music group where the camaraderie and togetherness were just as important as the music.

Living in a Ryman village, Ross can continue living life to the full in his retirement because they are places where you don’t retire from life, you find a new way to live .
