My Dear Boosted Supporters,
The biggest thanks to you all for your donations! It is such a pleasure to look upon this site every day and see my champions in little grey squares. The serious countdown begins now to reach this target. If you have any friends who might similarly be interested in donating I would be so grateful if you could encourage them to do so!
I am holding a concert on Saturady the 23rd of August, here in Wellington just two days before I skip town. I am excited to be able to perform for my supporters and celebrate some of the musical connections that have made life as a percussionist in NZ so special.
I will be playing some of my favorite chamber music pieces from the NZ repertoire, a Steve Reich duet, plus a premier of a work written for me by my friend at the NZSM Steffan Paton. It shall be a feast of marimba music! Plus many cakes for sale by my enchanted bakers.
I will be joined by my friends and coleagues from Stike Percussion, Jeremy Fitzsimons from Orchestra Wellington, Luca Manghi the most wonderful freelance flute player from Auckland and Marimba Mojo- the Zimbabwean Marimba band I run with my dad Julian Raphael.
It would be wonderful to see your faces there and have the chance to thank you in person before I leave. To my guardian angels from the UK and overseas this could be tricky, but I am very much looking forward to being reunited with you soon.
Much love and the warmest thanks, again!
