THE NZ YOUTH CHOIR
The NZ Youth Choir is coming to Westport! Our nationally selected choir of singers aged 18-25 is back in town for the first time since 2003. In the last few years this award-winning ensemble have toured the South Pacific, gone viral on Facebook, sung for the Prime Minister and had many events cancelled by the Pandemic. Now they're rearing to get back on the road and celebrate the new year with new repertoire, new singers, but the same quality which kiwis have come to expect for their NZ Youth Choir.
It is always an honor to put the black uniform. These 50 singers have been selected from all over the country to represent New Zealand. The trophy cabinet at headquarters is full to the brim and includes the "world cup" of choir singing, the "Choir of the World" trophy won in 1999 in Wales.
This is your chance to see the choir on your home turf for one night only. Pack your whanau, bring your mates, this will be one glorious night out.
