The Federated Mando- lin Ensemble is set to play its first concert in Auckland for 20 years following a week-long festival. Fifty performers, in- cluding musicians from overseas and members of the Auckland Mandolin- ata Orchestra, will con- gregate at the Raye Freedman Arts Centre to lull audiences with the instrument s original sound. This is a unique op- portunity to hear a truly classical orchestra with players from both inside and outside New Zea- land, organiser Diana Grant-Mackie says. As well as the classic mandolin, the event will feature musicians play- ing mandolas, luito, mandocello, guitars and more. Likened to a cross between a guitar, a uku- lele and a bass, the man- dolin gets its sound from plucking double strings. It s derived from the lute family of instru- ments, which originated in North Africa. The concert is part of a week-long festival cele- brating the instrument, for fun people and serious musicians . Music will include fea- ture pieces by inter- nationally acclaimed New Zealand composer David Farquhar. The concert will also be the world premiere for newly commissioned works by Australasian composers Yvette Au- dain and Ann Carr-Boyd. Tickets for the con- cert, which takes place on January 8 starting at 8pm, are available through iticket.co.nz. Visit www.mandolin ata.net for more details. Target to cut delays As of this month Auck- land City Hospital s northern regional cancer care centre has set the challenge to reduce the wait for radiation treat- ment from six weeks to four. The goal comes with the introduction of a new linear accelerator that replaces an older machine. The new addition means there are now nine of the machines in Auckland. To help the centre achieve its four-week target, health minister Tony Ryall says the gov- ernment will spend more than $300,000 to improve patient manage- ment systems which could open up to five extra treatment slots per day. There is good evi- dence that delays in starting cancer treat- ment can reduce the chances of controlling cancer and increase the relapse rate. If a centre meets the four-week target, patients and clinicians can be assured people are getting their cancer treatment within a clinically appropriate and safe timeframe. He says the govern- ment is investing up to $32 million over five years in a bowel cancer screening programme.
