Students from Auckland’s Diocesan School for Girls
sing the official Jubilee Song “Sing” at their annual
Senior Prize Giving in Parnell’s Holy Trinity Cathedral.
The performance by 100 singers from three of Diocesan’s
award-winning choirs, St Cecilia Singers, Bella Cantoris
and the Senior Choir, was the fully orchestrated New Zealand
premier of the song created by Gary Barlow and Andrew Lloyd
Webber. “Sing” celebrates Queen Elizabeth’s 60-year
reign and the power of music to unify cultures and
continents across the Commonwealth.
