The Star Latest Christchurch news at www.star.kiwi Thursday April 12 2018 17 News Local News Now Bittersweet win for big band Musician dies day before concert • By Sophie Cornish THE ST ANDREW’S College big band had extra incentive to win at the National Youth Jazz Competition – bass player, Tom Fastier, collapsed and died the day before the competition began. “Tom was a bass player from Cashmere High School who was playing with our big band this year. He had a strong chance of winning best bass player at the festival as he was a very accomplished musician,” head of music Duncan Ferguson said. “We were delighted to win, but it was bittersweet,” he said. St Andrew’s won the most outstanding big band title at the competition in Tauranga. The band dedicated its set to Tom, who died while on his way to Cashmere High on March 27. His death was possibly related to a medical event. Mr Ferguson said schools sometimes share musicians to play instruments that they are lacking. SWEET SOUNDS: St Andrew’s College year 12 students Lewis Edmond and Jenna Wells performing at the 41st National Youth Jazz Competition. Right – Tom Fastier “For the first time in the festival’s history, organisers and judges allowed the band director/ teacher to play in place of Tom on the bass,” he said. St Andrew’s also won a combo silver award and a big band gold award. Serge Beaton won the Rodger Fox Trophy for the most outstanding trombonist and Angus Rainey won the Edwina Thorne Trophy for the most outstanding trumpet or flugel. Said competition director Liam Ryan: “We had a record number of registrations – 320 students from 21 secondary schools as far and wide as Christchurch and Wellington. Due to this we added an extra day to cater for the 18 combos and 14 big bands performing.” Fire rages, homes at risk Plans reveal indoor learner’s pool • By Sophie Cornish and Julia Evans THE NEW Edgeware Pool will not look anything like it’s predecessor, new plans have revealed. Just-released designs for the $4.5 million-$5 million project show the complex will include an indoor learner’s pool, which will be a major source of income for the facility. Initially the facility was set to have two heated outdoor pools – but the learner pool will move indoors, while the 25m pool will remain outside. The new designs also include a small gym, car park and outdoor area. The St Albans Pool and Pavilion group commissioned the plans from Apollo Design, the designers of QE II Park. Group spokesman Stephen Anderson said it is pleased with the plans and pricing. He said the indoor pool would add a revenue stream, as well as “mitigate any concerns” neighbours had with noise. The complex will have no operating cost for the ratepayer as it is an entirely community driven project. However, some community involvement in the form of volunteering when it first opens may be needed, Mr Anderson said.
