CIVIL ENGINEERING . DRAINAGE CONTRACTORS Advertising Feature Casita Miro and Miro Vineyard are again hosting the very talented English soprano Clemetine Lovell. Waihekeans will recall her concerts on the Island in 2011 and 2010 and many who attended reported this was one of the musical highlights of their year. She returns to sing arias from Mozart -- Una donna a quindici anni (from Cosi fan Tutte), two pieces from Donizetti; the frst from L'elisir d'amore, and the second from from Don Pasquale. Then there will be pieces by Puccini -- (from Gianni Schicchi) ,Gershwin -- Summertime (from Porgy and Bess), La Vie en rose and The quiet joys of brotherhood. And yes, for those of you who are now addicted, if you tell her you want an encore, she WILL sing the Octopus song. But that is not all. This year for your delectation, Casita Miro has added Little Sister to the programme. Waihekeans who have got off the ferry at Matiatia to be greeted by the almost heavenly sound of Little Sister singing under the canopy on the wharf, will no doubt want to attend the concert to hear this extraordinarily talented local group as well. This double billing is running on two nights only, 15 and 17 February. Both concerts are already three-quarters sold and so the remaining few tickets will go swiftly. Phone 372-7854 to book. Clementine Lovell sings at Miro Day draws people together Busy scene, above: Piritahi Marae was buzzing with Waitangi Day visitors. Ka pai kai, left: Morihu Heta and Kora Anselmi are just two of the band of men to carry the hangi lunch to the hungry crowd. Marae message, right: Whaea Huhanna Davis says Waitangi Day is about honouring our collective treaty. Digging in: It's all spades on deck to haul out the hangi. By GEORGE GARDNER Visit www.waiheke marketplace.co.nz to see a flax flower being made. THE community met Piritahi Marae's plea last week to come together'' to celebrate Waitangi Day. Hundreds of visitors attended talks, listened to live music, enjoyed flax weaving demons- trations, and queued for the hangi that was raised at lunchtime. It was not without pol- itical flavour with the National and Maori par- ties coming to a head over the treaty clause. Waiheke's marae had its own message. A nikau husk in the entrance to the marae meeting room read: Honour the Treaty = Dignity'' and on the other side: No asset sales''. It's important we respect each other and appreciate the God-given paradise we have,'' marae spokeswoman Huhanna Davis, known to those on the marae as Whaea Hu, says. We must consider the impacts on our sea and land seriously. 2012 is about vibra- tional change and the protection of our sustainable resources.'' The Waiheke Re- sources Trust and volunteers did their part and gave visitors the opportunity to separate and dispose of rubbish in a sustainable way.
