A wonderful night was had on Friday 8th June with the combined The Big Sing and The Kids Sing. Six The Kids Sing choirs and three The Big Sing choirs performed and the evening was adjudicated by Judy Bellingham. All the choirs did a stella job with some choirs really going to town with brilliant costumes and entertaining pieces.Two of The Kids Sing choirs opted to be graded with Central 1st XV gaining Bronze and the Trebles gaining Gold. The Trebles were also awarded the “Spirit of the Festival” Award.
This year was the first year Waitara High School entered The Big Sing. They impressed everyone with their heartfelt performance and stunning harmonies and soloists. We hope they continue to sing and come back next year!
Sacred Heart Girls’ College “In Harmony” did a lovely programme gaining Commended and New Plymouth Girls’ High School’s “Jubilate Singers” polished performance gained Highly Commended.
Well done to all the choirs, directors, accompanied and teachers for their commitment to singing!
