Review - Gulf News (24 May 2012) by Eileen Evans:
"Violinist David Rawsthorne, pianist Reg Towers and vocalist Andy Spence shone on Saturday at Whittaker's in one of the most moving and professional performances I've attended for quite a while... How lucky we were to experience music at this level, which reaches a core place in our being and gives so much pleasure."
About the show
This show celebrates the heroic musicians of the Titanic. All music is taken from the official White Star Line Songbook, used by the musicians on board RMS Titanic.
Why not dress up?
You are most welcome to dress up for the occasion (optional & fun), passengers in period attire may be invited to the exclusive First Class Lounge on arrival!
Make a weekend of it
Tickets are on sale from the Waiheke i-SITE in Oneroa, and they can also help with accommodation and travel arrangements if you would like to make a weekend of it on Waiheke Island.
In 2011 Andy Spence (voice), David Rawsthorne (violin) & Reg Towers (piano) were among those who took part in the Waiheke Island production of Fiddler on the Roof. A year later they got together and put on a sell-out concert of music played aboard HMS Titanic at Whittaker's Piano Museum, Oneroa, Waiheke Island. They are delighted to have the opportunity to present the show again at Artworks Theatre for two nights only.
