Healing quake-torn Kaikoura with music

From Standing Room Only, 12:50 pm on 25 June 2017

Music we know is a great healer, and members of the Christchurch Symphony Orchestra have just been to quake-hit Kaikoura to play for children and for people who're struggling. Kaikoura Earthquake Recovery Team invited five CSO musicians to perform for local schools, for residents in the Kaikoura Health Facility,  and the wider community during the week. CSO first violin Cathy Irons talks to Lynn Freeman about the experience.
