11 NORTHERN NEWS, APRIL 20, 2011 ARTS MOJ 1040 justice.govt.nz/services/jury-service JURY SERVICE. YOUR CONTRIBUTION COUNTS. Mona teaches chemistry to high school kids. She believes in their futures and is just as passionate about their right to grow up in a fair and just world. So when she was selected for jury service she accepted, and was able to rearrange the dates so it didn't clash with the school year. New Zealanders like Mona contribute to their communities because they know what it takes to create the kind of country we all want to live in. When you're called upon to serve your community through jury service, say yes. For all your WOF and automotive servicing needs. Comprehensive vehicle repairs: Cars, Vans, Utes, 4 x 4s, Light Trucks.

Photo: DEBRA SHAND Life is a song. Love is the music. -- Unknown Lunchtime Concert at Turner Centre These popular concerts are back in full swing in the theatre bar. Last week we were treated to a delightful 45 minutes of glorious sing- ing by three of Carol Maher s students: Lucy Shand, Tommi Skipage and Jordan Westerlund. Lucy gave us a sneak preview of her national competition pieces to be performed in Auckland. She is the full enter- tainer package -- a beau- tiful voice, charisma, a natural acting ability and instant rapport with her audience. Lucy is a rising star with a great future in theatre. Jordan just gets better and better and also has good rapport with his audience -- another rising star. Tommi is new to Kerikeri and New Zea- land having moved from South Africa to be one of Carol Maher s students -- what a good move. Tommi is a delight and certainly an asset to the performing community. Bravo Carol and singers. Uwe Grodd and Peter Doublinszki at Front- line They are wonderful musicians whose flute and guitar created a sub- lime blend. The programme included three haunting Japanese compositions for flute requiring the flautist to emulate the traditional breathy sha- kuhachi timbre which maestro Grodd accomplished with mag- nificent skill. Doublinszki is the quintessential classical guitarist performing with passion and exquis- ite sensitivity, capturing and conveying the essence of each compo- sition. A highlight of this con- cert was Duo for Two Flutes in D Major by Telemann, performed by Grodd and Clare Penny. Penny is a Kerikeri flute teacher and an astounding performer. I am a huge fan. Watch out for Aroha Music Society s next con- cert at Frontline, the Jade String Quartet on May 9 at 7.30pm. I have heard this quartet and highly recommend them. Never a Dull Moment at Origin This is by far one of the best exhibitions I have seen at Origin. It is a collection of work by past and present mem- bers of this highly suc- cessful co-operative com- memorating its 30th birthday -- what an achievement. Origin is proud of its commitment to produc- ing quality art and craft and, in all the time I have known Origin, it always has. This is a do-not-miss exhibition and a chance to wish Origin a happy birthday and continued success. Out of the Rubble Auction at Kaan Za- maan A heartfelt thank you from gallery owner Julia Reinholt to all contribu- ting artists and the people who bought works at the auction.
