Best be prepared for the weekend

April has passed in the blink of an eye, and as it comes to a close this weekend, we have an eclectic mix of options for music lovers, the prepared, the nostalgic and the shiny.

Harping on

After time away, Harpist Anna Christensen is playing in Greytown tomorrow. She is not one to miss. Christensen has been principal harpist in the New Zealand Symphony Orchestra, harpist in residence at Government House and internationally on orchestra tours through Europe, China and Japan.

Tomorrow’s performance will include pieces by early Italian composers and more recent works, including Christensen originals.

57 Wood St, Greytown, Sunday, 4pm. Contact Ed and Juliet Cooke for bookings on 06 304 9497 or [email protected].

Preparing for disaster

The Greytown Emergency Response and Resilience Expo is running today, designed to develop an understanding of community resilience before, during and after disasters. Water and Greater Wellington Regional Council will be there to explain flood mapping work, pre-empting more heavy rainfall this year. Also on the schedule are Lifeline Utilities on Wairarapa’s infrastructure vulnerabilities, Fire and Emergency New Zealand on home safety and MPI with ideas on providing for your farm or companion animals. If you need another incentive to be present for some emergency management, the first 50 visitors to the Expo are even promised a small gift.

Held in Greytown’s Community Emergency Hub, Today, 10am to 3pm.

Pink Floyd tribute

The group specialises in ‘precisely replicating the sound of Pink Floyd’ and will be playing a show at the Carterton Events Centre, promising full quadraphonic sound and state-of-the-art dynamic lighting.
