Gallipoli Concerto

30 June 2015 - 9:53am -- garethfarr

I am writing a cello concerto for the renowned young French cellist, Sébastien Hurtaud, to be premiered by the Brussels Philharmonic and the New Zealand Symphony Orchestra. We are looking for funding to commission the writing of the piece. The piece was directly inspired by my visit to ANZAC Cove in Gallipoli a couple of years ago, when I performed at the dawn ceremony on ANZAC day there. I had always known that my great-grandmother's 3 older brothers all died in the First World War, but this was the first time that the true human tragedy of it hit me hard.

I'm a singer-songwriter just moved up to Wellington recently. Inspired by the importance of the importance of this anniversary year, I've written some songs about the war. If there were any suitable places to perform them I would love to play them. Thanks.

Before the Landing at Gallopoli

9 April 2015 - 5:13pm -- Don MacLeod

I wish to share some photos of my Grandfather's photo album taken in 1915. He was William Leonard Harrison, (rank Sergeant) who served with the Canterbury Mounted Rifles and he shipped to Egypt with the main body. I have 40 of his photos before they shipped to Gallipoli, so wish to share some for you. The HQ building at Zeitoun and Cairo look as if they came from Oamaru. Strawberries and Cream in the desert before the big baptism by machine gun fire.

Never Forget

7 April 2015 - 5:03pm -- Never Forget

2015 marks the 100th anniversary of Anzac Day. It is a moment in time, and the project intends to capture the thoughts and actions of Australians and New Zealanders a century after the landings at Gallipoli. It is intended that at 0500, on April 25th 2015, from every Anzac Day Ceremony held globally, all Australians and New Zealand citizens can upload an image of themselves (Selfie) along with a summary of what Anzac Day means to them.
