TAS Country : December 2nd 2010
Friday, December 3, 2010 Tasmanian Country 21 News Young talent time at Franklin THE Tasmanian Youth Orchestra will perform a Christmas concert at the Palais Theatre at Franklin on Sunday. More than 80 young players will fill the stage at the restored theatre. ''We like to play a variety of different music,'' conductor Simon Reade said. The program will include music by Beethoven and songs from the films Madagascar and Pirates of the Caribbean. The youngest member of the orchestra is seven years old. The TYO is made of five groups. The top group is the Project Orchestra, a statewide group that does not rehearse weekly. The other four groups rehearse weekly. They are the Sinfonia, a full orchestra of 45 players; the Junior and the Intermediate Strings; and the Percussion Ensemble. TYO spokesperson Gabrielle Robin said the orchestra was keen to stage more regional concerts. ''We want to entice players from re- gional areas to join our programs,'' Ms Robin said. Sunday's concert at the Palais Theatre at Franklin starts at 2pm. Tickets, which cost $12 for adults, $5 for children or $25 for a family, are available at the door. Competition at core of fears From Page 9 Mr Burns said he feared local markets would be flooded if a ship- ment of New Zealand apples was rejected by the major supermarkets because of defects. Mr Beaven said New Zealand apples travelled for 35 days to the United Kingdom by ship and were rarely if ever rejected. ''It would be a very, very sad day if somebody sent 50 containers of bad fruit to Tasmania,'' he said. ''That's just bollocks on the part of your growers to even think that it could possibly happen.'' Mr Beaven said the Australian market was capable of taking half a million cases of NZ apples. He said mature, symtomless apples did not pose a risk of fireblight, and the two decisions in the Japan-US WTO case and two decisions in the NZ- Australia WTO case supported that. ''How much evidence do we need to put in front of Australia before they accept the fact that everyone else accepts around the world?'' Mr Beaven said. The Burns have reacted quickly to the challenge of Kiwi imports and are diversifying their farm infrastructure. ''We've pulled out trees that we may not have pulled out, we've started planting wine grapes and we are looking at market garden veg- etables for very local sales,'' Mr Burns said. ''She's a funny world. ''I wonder if New Zealand would like some of our fruit in a glut year.'' 2014605-101203 For full details of Clearing Sales, Wool and Livestock Market Reports visit our website www.robertsltd.com.au Hobart 6235 1444 Launceston 6337 1555 Smithton 6452 2511 Devonport 6424 8271 1st On-Property Sale by Auction Thursday 9th December at 1pm (inspection from 10.30am) At "Leenavale" 689 Pawleena Rd, Sorell 40 top o t e rop Super ne an ine ra s inclu es 5 polls) w e C m e T w S w ee ee e e T e e L e w e 2007 -3,800 / g He : F ee, O D ee, B e A e e ee The Thornbury family would like to invite, old clients, new clients and visitors, to join them for a drink after the sale.
