New Zealand Symphony Orchestra Amusements and Triva

The New Zealand Symphony Orchestra, the "first orchestra on the web", is ostensibly at; 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.

Last time I checked (Nov 26, 2005), the below jokes were also mirrored at (offline in 2009) and (offline in 2010).
