Te Marama Puoro o Aotearoa – NZ Music Month
May is New Zealand Music Month – yay! This year’s ‘Level Up’ theme is about bringing into focus tomorrow’s stars, showcasing up-and-coming talent and success stories, and celebrating what emerging success means for the New Zealand artists
What’s happening at the Library:
- A live-streamed performance from local artists on May 26th. Check back here and we’ll post a link to it.
- A display of music photography, called From The Pit (https://fromthepit.co.nz/). You can see this on the big screen on the Central Library’s Sound & Vision area throughout May.
- A quiz so you can test your NZ Music knowledge. You’ll find it at the bottom of this post.
- Even more exciting: we want YOU to help us write a song! Submit a line and we’ll use it to write a song at the end of the month. You can submit a line by: writing it on the song lyric sheet in Sound & Vision at the Central Library; or email your line to firstname.lastname@example.org (subject: “Library song”); or comment on this blog post below.
As usual, you can borrow local music on CD and vinyl for free! Visit the Sound & Vision area of the Central Library.
