Recently nominated for New Zealand Jazz Artist of the Year, Arts Foundation award winner Lucien Johnson and his quartet of highly esteemed musicians Jonathan Crayford (piano), Tom Callwood (Double Bass) and Cory Champion (Drums) will deliver what promises to be a sumptuous evening of mesmerising music from some of Aotearoa’s finest musical luminaries.

Who Are We?

SUNDAY NOVEMBER 7, 2:00PM

Who Are We? a response to the Palmerston North 150 year celebration.
The grand artistic ladies of Palmerston North Evelyn Rawlins and Gwen Gibbs will be brought to life, we will explore flax farming, Te Marae o Hine, the life of a farming woman and the significance of our diverse cultural heritage.

Who Are We? Is six very different performances from local performing artists who explore this idea in their own unique ways.

Toi Warbrick, Kane Parsons, Tanu Gupta, Sue Pugmire, Ling Wang and Tania Kopytko delve into Who Are We? through music, dance, theatre and ngā taonga pūoro. This project is a response to the Palmerston North 150 year celebration.

How quickly we can lose our history, forget those or what came before, or forget the meaning of what we have now. Do we value our local stories? Do we hear or see them enough? Do we tell of our own struggles, to be who we are now - in this city? Who we are can be so many things.

ENTRY: By donation

Performance is approximately 1.5 hours. Suitable for all ages. Kindly funded by the Legacy Trust and PN City Council 150 grant.

REMember R.E.M

FRIDAY NOVEMBER 26, 7:30PM

Some 40 years since American college band R.E.M. set out on their road to global stardom, and 10 years since they decided to call it a day, a group of five musos from Taranaki are playing their biggest hits to audiences across the North Island.

For those of us who’ve forgotten, REMember R.E.M. are gearing up to jog our memories with a setlist full of their most popular songs.

Think Losing My Religion, Everybody Hurts, Drive, Man On The Moon and Shiny Happy People. And for those of us with a few more years on the clock, cast your minds back to Stand, The One I Love and the ultra-frenetic It’s The End Of The World As We Know It.

The New Plymouth-based tribute act are looking forward to bringing their show to The Globe in Palmerston North.

“In the time we’ve been doing this we’ve found that R.E.M.’s back catalogue is widely known and lives strong with NZ music fans,” says REMember R.E.M. lead singer Nick Maybury.

“They’re a band whose songs still resonate and take you back to memorable times in your life. And on top of that their musicianship and songwriting was absolutely top drawer.

“It’s a huge thrill for us to be recreating these songs and we can’t wait to give Palmy locals a fantastic, and nostalgic, night out!”

Chamber Music New Zealand presents Another Night In Vienna

SUNDAY DECEMBER 12, 5:00PM

This show was originally scheduled for Saturday September 11th. Tickets purchased for the September show are valid for the December show.

“Welcome to Vienna! My name is Wolfgang, and I’ll be your tour guide this evening…

Here, as we near the end of the nineteenth century, Vienna is the very heart of the famous Habsburg Empire. Caffeine addicts, worry not, this is a café society. Art lovers – this is a cultural centre. We’ll experience it all. Follow me!

However, please do not stray from the tour path. Or you may find yourself confronted with the erotic ‘pornography’ of artists Gustav Klimt and Egon Schiele. Or telling your secrets to neurologist Sigmund Freud. Or lost down some dark alley listening to the radical new musical ideas of composers Arnold Schoenberg, Berg, or Webern. And if you really venture into the shadows, you might find lurking there a failed art student who will change the course of the twentieth century. Consider yourself warned!

But enough doom and gloom. I’m pleased to see you all dressed up as it’s very likely you’ll be dancing to waltzes by Strauss at some sumptuous ball before the night is through. Just another night here in Vienna!

Donald Armstrong, associate concertmaster for the New Zealand Symphony Orchestra, leads members of the Amici Ensemble and 2020 NZCT Chamber Music Contest winners Ravelation for ANOTHER NIGHT IN VIENNA – blending letters, ephemera and chamber music into a dramatic journey through one of the world’s most important cities during one of its most fascinating periods.

Frank Talbot

FRIDAY 17 DECEMBER, 7:30PM

Exciting original jazz music from one of New Zealand’s finest saxophonists, Frank Talbot presents a range of emotional, ambitious and lively new music featuring some of Wellington’s most in demand players.

Originally Hailing from Devonport, Talbot moved to Wellington in 2016 on a scholarship to study at the New Zealand School of Music where he gained his degree. Since moving, he’s quickly made a name for himself, as a Concerto Competition finalist, twice winner of the annual combo competition and section leader in the big band. This led to opportunities outside the university, joining the Rodger Fox Big Band, including touring and recording in New Orleans and New York, the Royal New Zealand Air Force, the Julie Lamb Outfit and twice being selected to tour and record in Eastern Europe with the JM Jazz World Orchestra. 

Talbot brings a range of influence in his compositions. As a big fan of varying genres including jazz, classical, heavy metal, funk and having performed and recorded with indie artists, prog bands, modern metal projects and pop/funk outfits, he has a versatile range while remaining steeped in the tradition.

A runaway success in London’s West End, at successive Edinburgh Festivals, at the Melbourne Comedy Festival and right across the USA, this is a hilarious send-up of classical music, which has established Australian pianist, David Scheel, as the successor to the legendary Victor Borge.

Beautiful music, and musical fun performed in so many accents/voices that David has also been compared to the late Robin Williams, and Peter Ustinov. Hear a familiar tune played in the styles of the old masters + an i-Pod; two famous pieces played simultaneously, one with the right hand, one with the left, plus his “translation” of the lyrics of Waltzing Matilda, already a comedy classic.
