Photo: FIONA GOODALL By KRISTINA RAPLEY Music is his passion and he intends to make a career out of it.Macleans College student David van Laar-Veth, 18, has just finished his last year at school and is looking forward to a degree in music next year. He says the best thing he has done at the college was being part of its new CD -- Golden Escapades. About 160 students in the music department feature on the CD and David plays the flute and piccolo. Doing the CD was defi- nitely the pinnacle of all my musical accomplishments so far, he says. Head of music Nigel Weeks says this is the college s second professionally-recorded CD and people will be amazed with the quality. This is the very best of Macleans music. I think it s an amazing achievement from one particular school. The music is mainly classi- cal with an eclectic mix of vocal and instrumental pieces. The groups featured on the CD are the Macleans sym- phony orchestra, choir, chamber orchestra, senior con- cert band and solo performances by Lawrence Wong, Valasi Leota-Seiuli, Raymond Lee, Laurence Larson, Tony Zhai and Choong Won Park. CDs are $25 each including postage and packaging. To purchase one send a cheque made out to Macleans College Music Department to 8 Himalaya Drive, Half Moon Bay, Auckland 2012. Visit www.macleans.school. nz for information or to listen to some of the tracks. IN BRIEF Modest house rise The average price of homes sold in the eastern suburbs during November was in line with those reached in the past 12 months, a real estate company says. ''The average selling price for the past 12 months is $547,000,'' Barfoot and Thompson managing director Peter Thompson says. ''This is 2 percent higher than it was at November 2009 representing a modest improvement in the prices being achieved during the past year.'' Sales volumes in the past 12 months are down 16 percent on those for the previous year. Areas of greatest activity were Dannemora, Howick and Pakuranga.
