The pair will perform 16 songs inspired by the poems of Heinrich Heine from 5pm on Saturday at Whittakers Music Mu- seum at Artworks, Oneroa. Ms Cheng will open with a performance of two Chopin works, the Scherzo in B minor and the Revolutionary Etude, and Johannes Brahms' Variations on a theme by Schumann. Ms Cheng is studying a masters majoring in piano performance under the tutelage of Rae de Lisle. She says she enjoys solo piano playing, but also accompanying other instrumentalists and playing chamber music. She has won many first prizes as a soloist, accompanist and cham- ber musician. Concert tickets are $20, concessions are available. Phone 372-9627 to book. Fans of education for kids Fun with fans: Red Shed school holiday programme students with their Japanese fans. Fun with fans was the theme of one of the days at the Red Shed school holiday programme in Palm Beach. Artist Jennifer Foun- tain led a group of enthusiastic young art- ists in a Chinese paint- ing and Japanese fan- making art class. Using traditional rice paper donated by Wai- heke resident Yachiyo Rhodes and special ink- painting brushes, they learnt how to create branches, blossom and write calligraphy on their fans. The children's art class complemented the cur- rent exhibition Fans for Japan on at the Red Shed. One child painted a huge wave on their fan, another simply wrote the word Love'' in Japanese. The participants were also taught about the significance of fans in Japanese culture and how they are used in celebrations and major events. The Red Shed holiday programme continues this week with classes until Thursday from 10am to 1pm and after school classes next term on Wednesday afternoons from 3pm to 4pm. Phone 372-9367 for bookings.
