The nationwide choral festival ‘The NZCF’s Big Sing’ which is run annually throughout the main centres of New Zealand, was cancelled this year due to Covid 19.
This decision has had a massive impact on the secondary school choral community as there are around 10,000 students who participate. During the Level 4 lockdown, NZCF decided to offer a project for those singers – a Virtual Sing video for Youtube. Singers had to learn the piece ‘A Te Tarakihi’ and video themselves performing it from their lockdown bubbles.
Congratulations to the following members of Cantare choir from Westlake Girls who put an entry through and now feature on the official video: Anya Powell, Mackenzie Wills, Chloe Eichler, Juliette Brice, Olivia Brice, Bella Allan-Moetaua, Hannah Jones, Gemma May, Rosa Troughton.
