Tuesday 5 Feb – from Korimako
Lake Rotoiti would have been a long flight, and well into the hills (600m above sea level), and despite the sun there was fresh snow on Mount Robert above the lake. Those who went and heard the Pendereki Quartet were delighted with the intimacy of the surroundings and were impressed with the acoustics of the chapel, built fifty years ago.
The Troubadour Quartet has been in hot demand this week playing as an outreach group for the Adam Festival, and crowds have listened attentively at each outing.
On Nelson Anniversary Day they could be heard under the canopy at the Queen’s Gardens, and yesterday they played at the public library and Woollaston Estates.
While performing at the Library below a Treaty of Waitangi display, the poster above Sophie fell completely enveloping her but the quartet played on!
And on Thursday the Troubadour Quartet will no doubt face their harshest critics at a pre-school centre.
