On Friday 9 June, Voci Celesti travelled to St Peter’s College Cambridge, to compete in the Waikato/Bay of Plenty Regional Big Sing Choral Competition. They presented songs from the following categories: New Zealand Composition/Arrangement, Classical Composition and one of their own choosing. Judges’ comments included “You managed good dynamic contrasts, vowel sounds and diction was clear”, “Lovely opening with well blended sound in both parts”, and “an ideal choice for this group. Very effective.” Congratulations to all choir members on a wonderful performance and a very enjoyable day.
Our Junior Choir made up of 30 Year 7 and 8 students are preparing for the annual Tauranga Primary Schools’ Music Festival performance on September 4th, 2017. They had their first rehearsal with five other school’s they will be performing with earlier in Term Two. The theme of the concert this year is ‘All creatures great and small’. This a wonderful event that encourages the next generation of coral singers at Aquinas College. Tickets for this concert will be made available through Baycourt Theatre.
