The student concert series, a three-way partnership between Expressions, Upper Hutt Music Society and the New Zealand School of Music, attracted almost 1000 to its eight concerts. Expressions director Stephanie Cottrill said the series surpassed all expectations, forcing a move from the foyer into the larger hall. Any venue is just a shell without superb performers and an appreciative audience. It s great to support the students on their career paths, and to help make our city a vibrant place to live. Upper Hutt Music Society chairwoman Clare Derby said the society aimed to expand its membership and ensure there was quality classical music in Upper Hutt. Although Mrs Derby said she loved all the concerts, a highlight of the series was the regular attendance of a group of intellectu- ally disabled adults from Petone. They love it. They close their eyes and sway as they listen to the music and are truly in heaven. The music school, Expressions and the music society hope to run another series next year. For more information, phone Stephanie Cottrill on 527 2851 or 027 443 2486, or email email@example.com. A thousand years of song Hispanic roots: The Carolina Moon Ensemble -- Carolina Moon, Kevin Field, Chris O'Connor, Matthias Erdrich, Nigel Gavin, Jessica Hindin and Roger Manins. In a fusion of cultures from the past to the present, Auckland-based ensemble Carolina Moon present a fiery, moving collection of ancient melodies from their recent CD Mother Tongue. Vocalist Carolina Moon heads this innovative ensemble, formed in 2008 to explore medieval world song within the context of a modern improvising jazz- based group. Their interpretations remain true to the spirit of this beautiful music while bringing it into the present day. For almost 1000 years the beautiful melodies of Judeo Spain have been borne by generations of mothers, lovers and daughters of the Diaspora, unfolding the story of a vibrant people through romances, life, love and loss. Ms Moon says the core of these songs were composed in the Golden Age of Spain -- 1100 to 1492 -- a time of great cross-pollination and peace between Christian, Muslim and Jewish cultures, who inspired each other to new heights of expression and excellence . Sung in their mother tongue, Ladino, the songs are rooted in traditions, rituals and community, and are imbued with a potency that has echoed down to us through almost a thousand years, renewed with each new generation, she says. The songs in the concert at Expressions were born in a period of inter-cultural exchange, and they are performed by the Carolina Moon Ensemble in the same spirit, with representatives from Sephardic, Western and New Zealand cultures. Carolina Moon plays in Expressions Genesis Theatre on Saturday, October 29 at 8pm. Tickets $35 adults, $28 groups and $15 students available from Expressions box office, phone 527 2168 or from expressions.org.nz.
