Performing Arts Update Term 2

Sinarella Production
In the last two weeks of April, Year 11 student Adyhana Urika Filifilia performed as a part of the Sinarella Production at the Māngere Arts Centre.

Sinarella was a heartfelt twist on the fairy-tale story, Cinderella, performed with a South Auckland flavour. Not only was Adyhana a part of the ensemble cast, she also was featured as a vocal soloist in a pivotal part of the production, performing a stunning rendition of the song, “Rise Up” by Andra Day. Despite a demanding rehearsal schedule and a total of 15 public shows, Adyhana thrived in the spotlight and thoroughly enjoyed the experience.

APO Discovery Concert Trip
On Wednesday 1 May, 45 of our Year 10 Music students were treated to a Discovery Concert by the Auckland Philharmonic Orchestra at the Auckland Town Hall.

They explored the importance of musical form and structure featuring works by Mozart, Beethoven, Faure and a piece written by APO Rising Star Young Composer of the year, Reuben Rameke. The musical journey our students were taken on was both inspirational and informative for their own compositional work in regard to how they might structure their own musical ideas. Significantly, they got to see the APO in all their glory and visit the glorious Town Hall venue: an experience that broadened many horizons.

By Jane Malauulu, Mangere College
Alofa atu nei, alofa mai taeao.
Se’eane laia i ou se’etaga malu,
Ae se’i ou tautala e fa’ailo ma toe fa’amanatu.
Le autu po’o le manulauti lele ua fa’ata’atia
O sou manatu ma so’u lagona o le’a folasia.
Le upu alofa e talalasi lona fa’amatalaina,
Le faasamoa, o fa’alapotopotoga, aoga aemaise o aiga.
Ae e fa’amamafa la’u talanoa i le alofa fa’atino i totonu o a’oga,
Le tomai ma le poto salalau lele ua saoasaoa lona fa’aaogaina.
Le alofa fa’aali i totonu o aoga, o le a lona uiga,
Lima foa’i, tautua punoua’i ma lou alofa le fa’atuaoia.
E moni lava o alo ma fanau mai atu motu eseese o le pasefika,
Peita’i o le alofa fa’asamoa e le fa’apito lona fa’atinoina.
O lou alofa fa’aali ma se mea lelei e te faia i totonu o lou
si’osi’omaga,
O le’a le galo lea i o matou loto ma agaga.
I totonu o aoga o se siosiomaga malu puipuia ma toe saogalemu,
O faiaoga i le latou matafaioi o le a’oa’o, ina ia maua le poto e
tautua ai atunu’u.
Alofa atu nei,alofa mai taeao,
Le vaiaso o le gagana Samoa ina ia uli ma sao.
Tama a tagata e fafaga i upu ma tala,
Aua o le Samoa moni lava e tauama i ana tu ma ana aga.
A’o se upu ua le tautamali’i i lau fa’afofogaaga,
Fa’amagalo se leo vaivai o le auauna.
Talosia ia maua se ai o lenei fa’atasiga,
Aua tupulaga fai a’e, ae tainane o nuu, ekalesia ma aiga.
E ese lota mimita ae vaai atu o sagisagi fiafia fanau e fia iloa le ta
gagana, aua fai mai upu a le atunu’u, “A leai se gagana, ua po le
nu’u. O se fa’amatalaga pu’upu’u lena e tusa foi ma lea fa’amoemoe
taua na feagai ai nisi o aoga maualuluga i totonu nei i Aukilani. Ou
te fa’amoemoe i le Tama o i le lagi na te fa’amatala ma fa’apupula

ma finagalo. Se fai mai e iloa lava le Samoa

Se upu ua le tautamali’i i sau silasila,

Soifua ma ia manuia.
