An exhibition and sale of works by the late Arthur Briscoe has raised $3538.50 for Amnesty International. The three-day show was held at the Onetangi Residents and Rate- payers Hall by Arthur s daughter Jane. Art lovers shifted through four decades of the artist s work from the 60s to the 90s at the opening night on Thur- sday. Saturday and Sunday mornings were also busy, Jane says. We also have a bun- dle of letters to forward to Amnesty Internation- al from people who par- ticipated in the Write for Rights campaign, Jane says. She thanks everyone who made the event possible. Mozart has to wait for Easter Joyous music will not be heard from the Waiheke Choral Society this Christmas as it has had to cancel its concert. A soprano s with- drawal and a surgery has led to the cancella- tions of its Christmas concert, Mozart and Mes- siah, scheduled for this weekend at St Peter s Church. It was planned for the weekend of December 1 and 2 but was postponed because the soprano solo- ist withdrew. Choral Society musical director Richard Melville has undergone surgery that will prevent him from conducting for sev- eral weeks. At an emergency meet- ing of the society s com- mittee it was decided to cancel the performance and to plan a Mozart concert for next Easter. Richard was talking about doing a bit of Christmas music anyway -- something that wouldn t require too much conducting, society president Andy Spence says. But we felt he should rest and recover from the operation, so we pushed the whole thing back to the new year. Mr Spence says the extra four months will permit the singers to learn a second Mozart mass, known as the Credo Mass, and to per- form it along with the originally-planned Great Mass in C minor. Mr Melville says it should actually make it a very interesting concert. The Great Mass was written in Mozart s younger days, and is full of the moody energy and inventiveness of youth. The Credo Mass, written towards the end of the composer s short life, shows Mozart in his more mature, polished style. Both are fascinating, and both are unmistaka- bly Mozart. The Choral Society is always looking for new singers. Go to waihekechoral.org.nz to find out more about joining. Motat lights up for Christmas Celebrating Christmas: Motat is lit up with twinkling fairy lights ready for the festive season.

With live enter- tainment, music, night tram rides and beautiful Christmas displays from 8pm to 11pm, there will be plenty for the whole family to enjoy. Entry to Motat Nights, Christmas Lights is by gold coin donation, with all proceeds going towards purchasing Christmas gifts for New Zealand charities Barnardos and the Auckland City Mission.
