July 31 2006 Concert with Jonathan Lemalu and Sandra Martinovic

This fantastic event was a huge success. The concert was sold out well in advance resulting in many disappointed concert lovers being turned away. The highlight was undoubtedly the duets between Jonathan and Sandra. The augmented choir of 75 with orchestra rose to the occasion and the atmosphere was electric.  The musicians received a standing ovation lasting several minutes.  
  Jonathan spoke at the end of the concert and thanked all those involved: soloists Dominique Peyroux, Sarah Wilson, Taniamaree Joll. He paid special tribute to Dr Raymond White, you may read about the concert and tribute in the Southland Times here. Russell Cowley, administrator of Concert South who managed the concert was interviewed afterterwards here
