A burst of good cheer will flow from nor-west choir Pro Voce to start their festive season in the nor-west. Members of the a cappella group present a concert on December 5 at St Chad s in Huapai, from 4.30pm. A light supper will be pro- vided after the event. The programme spans the music of five centuries, from the very early Josquin des Pres to the 20th century New Zealand composer Jack Body. Popular items include The Three Kings, with bass soloist Colin Newel and Gaudete, a 16th-century Latin piece popularised by rock/folk group Steel Eyed Span. There are also traditional favourites to sing along with, including We Wish You A Merry Christmas. A selection of readings appropriate to the season will be presented. Special guest Samantha Jones will perform with sev- eral of her fellow students from the University of Auck- land s Department of Music. Pro Voce, which means For the Voice began in Helensville 16 years ago. Founding member and con- ductor Bryan Whitlock says the choir always welcomes new members, especially basses and tenors, who share a love of music. Tickets cost $15 for adults, $10 for unwaged and children are free. Contact Bryan on 524-4665 or email email@example.com for more information. Kids turn buskers to raise funds for unit By RANI TIMOTI An Operation Heal fundraiser is being held by a group of busking nor-west children. Up to 16 guitarists will per- form Christmas songs on December 19 in Waimauku Village from 11.30am for a couple of hours. Students from Woodhill School s folk group will also play an item. The group of eight to 13-year-olds will per- form while supported by Shi- mian Duo. Proceeds will go towards helping Jimi Harper, 15, to have further reconstructive work to correct horrific injur- ies sustained through a freak accident seven years ago. He was electrocuted by an 11,000 volt line while playing with friends near a power pole when he was just eight. He has since had 46 operations and needs another one to rebuild his abdominal wall. The Mad Butcher and Sub- urban Newspapers Com- munity Trust is getting right behind the National Burn Centre where Jimi was a patient. Funds from the community will raise money for a surgical microscope and help surgeons make life easier for people like Jimi. We want to raise as much money as possible for Jimi so he is able to do the things most 15-year-olds take for granted, Kumeu resident Shelley Martin says. Shelley has taught for six years at the NZ Modern School Of Music Guitar and at Woodhill and Helensville Schools for the last two years. This is such an important value to instill in children and Christmas is the perfect time to be giving. Residents can bring a cushion/blanket to sit on and enjoy the children s perform- ance.
