Difficult and frustrating as the lockdown is, it would be much worse had it happened if the internet wasn’t enabling us to work from home, access entertainment and keep in contact with others.
It’s also enabled people to get together musically from their individual lockdown bases.
A reader emailed introducing me to the BayLynn Youth Band which is comprised of mainly Year 4 to University age young people based in Auckland.
Their musical director, who teaches music at St Peters College, has set them some practice and performance tasks during lockdown. March of the Warbirds is a piece written by their associate music director Bernie Allen who is an 82 year young legend in NZ Music.
