We drove over the wild and windy Rimutakas today, and appear to have arrived in Ye Olde England!
We are serving up a tasty tapas-style programme in Featherston tomorrow night as part of the Kokomai Festival - would love to see lots of toe-tapping friends there if you fancy a grand night out :-)

It's been a whirlwind week at the Shanghai Conservatory with the lovely Yuri Cho - a concert at the New Music Week, and 11 new compositions performed last night for the composing competition. At least a million notes flew by.... great to catch up with old friends, make some new ones - and the beer was well earned (and enjoyed) afterwards!!!!
