Aksel Kolstad woos the audience with wit and talent

Aksel Kolstad, internationally acclaimed virtuoso pianist, composer and stand-up comedian from Norway, wooed the sell out audience at Zebra Rock Gallery on 29th May 2012. Playing his own interpretations of the classical masters, Grieg, Rachmaninov and Bach, (seeProgrambelow) he entertained with good humor and superb technique. 
 
After playing for the "adults" he put on aChildren's Concertthe next day where he played the part of Mozart and entertained 150 students at St Joseph's Catholic Primary School at the Leisure Centre in Kununurra.

Happy Birthday to Rod Creagh - Chief Sculptor at Zebra Rock Gallery.

We are not allowed to say this was a "significant birthday" but it was, and even Rod enjoyed the party.
 
Happy Birthday Rodfrom all your friends and admiring rock hounds.
 
The sign in the driveway has been taken down now but the sentiments remain. (Henry was to blame for that). Thanks Henry.
 
 
We received emal greetings from Jennifer Miller Creagh and others too numerous to list.
 
Rod, take care of those two bottled reds, but dont leave them alone for too long either.
