Background music by:
Fiona Pears (composer / violin)
Mike Ferrar (guitar)

Fiona Pears is a Lyttelton-based violinist and composer who performs nationally and internationally. Fiona started to write this moving piece, "Calm After the Storm", following the first earthquake which struck on September 4 2010,and completed it after the February 22 2011 earthquake. It was played live on National Radio by Fiona soon after during her interview with Jim Mora.

Many Lyttelton buildings, including homes and heritage landmarks such as the Timeball Station, were destroyed as a result of the earthquakes and the port suffered extensive damage. However, as home to many artists and musicians, the Lyttelton community has retained much of its spirit and its strength.

New Galleries

An indication of the creative adaptability of the Christchurch art community is the fact that within a remarkably short time two new galleries have sprung up in relatively central locations. One is the ABC Gallery at 337 Lincoln Road, and the other is Chambers@241 at 241Moorhouse Avenue. There is also a regular ten minute CTV art update on City Life presented by Dr Warren Feeney (Tuesdays at 9.00am; 4.00pm and 10.00pm ) to inform audiences about new shows at the surviving town galleries, as well as exhibition opportunities elsewhere in the region, such as Art at Oxford. The updates can also be accessed at www.ctv.co.nz
