Dear Parents

The Nelson Centre of Musical Arts has invited our students to join them at a special concert for Primary Schools featuring musical adventurers Alpaca Social Club on 21 November at 1 p.m. The concert and question and answer session will finish by 2.15 p.m.

Musical adventurers Craig Denham (on accordion, piano, whistles, vocals and percussion) and Jon Sanders (bouzouki, guitar, ukulele and vocals) are excited to share the music they love, with budding young musicians in the Nelson / Tasman region. Expect everything from Celtic music to the Balkans and the Middle East, Reggae, Soul, Americana and Gypsy music.

Craig and Jon began working together in pioneering NZ world / folk / jazz group Beyondsemble. They regularly tour Europe, with recent performances in Germany and the Czech Republic and have headlined a number of festivals in Ireland.


Prior to the concert we have planned to walk the center of New Zealand and have our lunch there before the show.


Sue will be driving the school bus. We have parent help from two kind parents and are looking for more parent helpers to bring vehicles so we can attend. Please let us know a.s.a.p.


Please ensure your child/ren have packed: Comfortable footwear for walking

Lunch and drink bottle

Sun hat with a wide brim


A warm jacket just in case it gets cold

Inhalers and/or anything specific to your child’s needs.


Kind Regards

Sue, Liz, Tracy, Anna and Tilly
