New Zealand Symphony Orchestra Amusements and Triva
The New Zealand Symphony Orchestra, the "first orchestra on the web", is ostensibly at http://www.nzso.co.nz; however, the site is missing. I've rounded up as much of their Musical Amusements page as I could, and presented it here. This is, again, a mirror of the now lost NZSO page. [The NZSO does still exist, but they now have a very slick, and boring, website.]
If anyone knows the whereabouts of the missing pieces, please let me know.
