Once again, we at RNZ Concert Three to Seven have been blown away by the photography skills on show from our listeners.

Rae from Hawkes Bay took the cake (well, conserve really) with her study of the apricots she was making into jam while listening to us this week.

She then followed that up with a mouthwatering shot of the finished product.

Rae asked for the King's Singers' version of "This Little Light of Mine" which she will be singing with her choir in Napier at the end of this year's Art Deco festival. 

Anna in Thames was 'procrastabaking' as she listened to RNZ Concert and wondered if we could play a harp arrangement of one of Chopin's waltzes. Of course we could!

Others who sent in shots of the view from their listening post included David, taking in our music as he made violins in his workshop. The silk tree outside his window is a great place to spot butterflies.

He also wrote, "I wonder if you could play the slow movement of Korngold’s Violin Concerto, played by Benjamin Morrison with the Christchurch Symphony Orchestra in 2021. (I am his father and miss him badly…he is working in Vienna)."

David, keep requesting. I'm sure we will find a slot for you sometime.

We also got this garden shot from the Rangitikei.

"I am a listener from Marton and I heard your offer for requests yesterday. I was busy making damson jam, looking out over the garden (pic attached). It's brutal taking all the stones out, so I needed diversion. I sell my produce to support my daughter Cecily Shaw who is studying opera at Guildhall in London."

Thanks for all your listening reports, photos and requests. Keep them coming!
