Have you got a book hangover? I’m still feeling the musical mayhem of Sylvia Patterson’s music memoir I’m not with the band. https://christchurch.bibliocommons.com/item/show/956721037_im_not_with_the_band ^Donna

New for 2017: The CSO, in partnership with the Christchurch City Libraries, is delighted to introduce Music Trails through the Library. These free 45-minute performances by CSO ensembles provide a fun and interactive way of introducing young people to live music. With elements of dance, song and stories, Music Trails through the Library is a great opportunity for children to see the instruments up close and join in with the musical fun. First up: Wednesday 1 Feb at Fendalton Library and a string quartet! http://my.christchurchcitylibraries.com/music-trails-through-the-library/ ^Donna

Christchurch giving some A+ sky this evening! ^Donna
