Helen Webby soothes Central Library

Helen Webby charmed a capacity crowd at Central Library this afternoon with a play list of both traditional Celtic, classical and contemporary Kiwi composed pieces. With standing room only (we ran out of chairs!) Helen amply demonstrated the versatility of the harp, at times playful and jaunty while at others delicate and lulling.
Helen, principal harpist with the Christchurch Symphony Orchestra, played a new composition by guitarist and saddle-maker John Egenes called “The Mule Colt”, a piece Helen describes as having a “groovy feel” and a Midwest swagger.
Anyone unlucky enough to have missed Helen today can catch her at:
  • Sumner Library on Friday 15th at 1pm, 
  • Fendalton Library on Saturday 16th at 11am
  • South Library also on Saturday 16th at 1pm with the added performance bonus of Helen’s students
  • Shirley Library on Tuesday 19th at 11am
  • Papanui Library on Friday 22nd at 3pm
  • Spreydon Library on Tuesday 26th at 11.30am
