Waterford, WI: The World Premiere Of Calling All Dawns!

This is the view from my hotel room in Waterford, WI. It's a small town of about 3000 people, but home to a high school with a large choral program, led by a very gutsy choral director named Derek Machan.

A year ago Derek asked if he might get a hold of the score and parts to the entire Calling All Dawns song cycle. He said he wanted to perform the whole thing. I thought he was nuts.

Flash forward to today, and I arrive in cold Waterford this evening for what is amounting to the world premiere of a song cycle that I thought would never be performed live. Yet here we are. Never in my wildest dreams did I think a high school, much less one in a town of 3000, would be able to assemble the resources to put on a performance of the whole album. It defies imagination.

I am told that Derek has assembled a choir of almost 200, and an orchestra of 75. Yes, you read that correctly. Derek will have more people on the stage tomorrow than I have on my album.

I'll continue blogging about this mind-boggling trip from my iPhone. Maybe take a few more pictures.

Mary - The stream is archived:

Not the best of sound qualities, as the person running the video was "adjusting" the sound as it went - ugh!

Nevertheless, you can get the general idea.

I've read with interest your accumulated comments, to which I contributed earlier, regarding our ancestral oral tradition and now question exactly what your ongoing interest might be? The main underpinning of this speech specifically, is as a farewell well-wishing speech to a distinguished person going overseas on an important journey. It is endearing for a couple of reasons: potential inherent dangers of travel by sea in that era and the huge implications this trip had on improving and advancing the position of the native people under a colonial government. That's it. So why continue to dig over it?
Two competing areas are not controversial because they have very ordinary explanations. Rangawhenua delivered another version of this korero in which he altered its ending accordingly, this is not an uncommon practice in korero tuku iho. He did it to mark the decision of the Ohura West Courtcase when he and his people as part of a Ngati Maniapoto contingent were moved off land at Taumarunui they had previously one from Ngati Haua ki Wanganui. The second area of potential dispute is simply a matter of tribal affiliation. Maniapoto or Rereahu. Well, technically he is both. Those who call Tuwhakahekeao the eponymous ancestor of Ngati Rereahu claim him as our own because like his brother Putangi he is the son of Kahatuatini both were indisputably Ngati Rereahu. Usually, paternal lineage decides ones, primary tribe. Though these traditions are becoming less and less significant in the postmodern era. On the other hand, those who claim him as Ngati Paahere is also unquestioned because of their own proximity to Ngati Maniapoto. The pedigree of Rangawhenua is therefore unquestioned, likewise his intellectual prowess. He is revered in Rereahu as we continue to pass down, korero, tauparapara, and acknowledge his work in measuring and identifying sites on our land. Hopefully, this puts an end to making a public display of our taonga tuku iho and our tupuna. Naaku noa atu, Armand Crown

A russian mail order bride is a lady who decides to marry and have children with a foreigner. With this goal in mind, I began my search for a female who likes me. I spent a lot of time originally reading all of the literature on the subject because I was afraid of being duped. When I was ready, I met a really nice girl I liked, and we spent a lot of time conversing from a distance, but I realized it wasn't comfortable for me. As a consequence, she decided to live with me. We are now happily married.
