Cultural Variety

A lot happens in the Waimakariri District!

On Saturday evening, Marilyn and I went to the Kaiapoi Cooperating Church to hear a triple-harp concert by Robin Ward. It was a most enjoyable recital and I left knowing a lot more about triple harps than did when I arrived! (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Triple_harp ).  Robin is based these days in the UK, but is the grandson of the late Margaret and Lloyd Cleland, both prominent in the parish and in Kaiapoi civic life in past decades.

Yesterday, we went to a poetry recital by Leonard Lambert, Rangi Faith and Roger Hickin, and featuring musical interludes by Julia Holcroft (piano) and Keeneth Love (‘cello), in the Chamber Gallery.  Rangi is a Rangiora local. Again, an enjoyable experience sponsored through the Waimakariri Community Arts Council.
