Composer Claire Cowan wrote four chamber music soundtracks performed by NZSO players for filmed readings of Mrs Wishy-Washy’s Farm by Joy Cowley, Sacha Cotter’s The Bomb, Miriama Kamo’s The Stolen Stars of Matariki and The Little Yellow Digger by Betty Gilderdale.
Each book was read by a special guest–television presenter and entertainer Suzy Cato (Mrs Wishy-Washy’s Farm), actor and award-winning musician Troy Kingi (The Bomb), television presenter and author Miriama Kamo (The Stolen Stars of Matariki) and actor and New Zealander of the Year Jennifer Ward-Lealand (The Little Yellow Digger).
We have received many messages of appreciation.
“Magnificent … an incredible experience and is so inspiring …Thank you for giving our books such world-class treatment.”
“Brilliant–loved the story and music. A magical production!”
“So creative, I love it.”
