Queens High School pupil Brenna Cropley (14) performs
live on air at Otago Access Radio yesterday.
Otago Access Radio hosted a live concert to celebrate Youth
Week 2014 and New Zealand Music Month.
The three-hour concert featured sets and interviews with 10
acts from Dunedin high schools and the Kokiri Training
''All the acts thought it was a great opportunity, because it
gets their music out to a wider audience,'' Oar FM youth
co-ordinator Domi Angelo-Laloli said.
''They all just want the chance to play to people.''
Youth Week was established by the Ministry of Youth
Development to recognise the contributions and achievements
of young New Zealanders.
Oar FM provides free airtime and training to help young
people produce radio shows that are relevant to youth.
It also hosts a ''Youth Zone'' programme, from 4pm to 5pm on
weekdays, on 105.4FM.
