Cellist Joanna Dann accompanied by Chris Dann performed a recital of works by Debussy, Elgar and Bach.
Joanna has been a part of music in the Manawatu since she started learning cello in 2004 through playing in the local orchestras, chamber groups, and solo performances. She has seen some success in the University of Waikato competitions, being a finalist in the concerto competition and runner up in the chamber competition. Joanna is performing these pieces for her third year recital at the University of Waikato later in February. She would like to thank her father Chris Dann for collaborating in this concert.
A special Candlemas Service was held at St Peter's this morning. Candles were blessed and the congregation were encouraged to take one with them at the conclusion of the service.
