Thursday 7 Feb – from Korimako
In an earlier entry I mentioned that the Troubadour Quartet was facing its “harshest” critics: visiting Paula’s Pre-School in Tahunanui. As it happened they had the kids charmed and enjoying themselves. First there was a warm-up, playing nursery rhymes while the youngsters joined in, then some dancing to the beat of gypsy music, and finally being given the chance to play (with assistance). There followed “duets”: the kids sang You are my sunshine, the quartet responded with Czardas, and then packed up while the young ones entertained them by singing Slippery Fish, gobbled up by a taniwha.
