NZ Music Month at the Library
Wellington Public Library is getting into the spirit of NZ Music Month with a series of free concerts of the course of this week.
Our pick of the bunch is the Wellington International Ukulele Orchestra
, featuring the talents of Flight of the Conchords
Bret McKenzie and local songsmith Age Pryor
, as well as an ever-expanding number of equally talented ukulele-wielding players.
on the mezzanine level
in the Young Adult area at the Central Library
from 1pm on Friday. Their regular Thursday-morning practice/concert at Deluxe Cafe has seen a few classic kiwi numbers being rehearsed (Straitjacket Fits on uke? It can be done), so it should be good fun.
The Library's also going a bit Willy Wonka, with 20 'Secret CDs' being hidden in the Central Library's New Zealand CDs collection. Borrow one, and you can win a $20 music voucher from RealGroovy or Music Works. Choice.
