Kurashiki Youth Chorus to perform for Christchurch public

The Kurashiki Youth Chorus will give free public performances in Cathedral Square and the Christchurch Arts Centre next week.

This award winning choir of 31 young people aged between 10 and 18 arrives in Christchurch next Wednesday, bringing to a close a year of thirtieth anniversary celebrations between Christchurch and our sister-city Kurashiki.

"The Chorus, which was formerly known as the Kurashiki Boys and Girls Choir, is very highly regarded in Japan and will be a delight to have here," Christchurch-Kurashiki Sister City Committee chair, Newton Dodge said.

The choir will perform at a lunchtime concert in Cathedral Square between 11.30am and 12.15pm on Friday 26 March and at The Great Hall, Christchurch Arts Centre between 1.30pm and 2.30pm on Sunday 28 March. All welcome.

The choir will also perform next Wednesday for delegates at the NZ Sister Cities Racing Ahead 2004 conference at the Christchurch Convention Centre . The following day, pupils at Cathedral Grammar and Selwyn House Schools will take part in workshops and perform with the choir at their schools.
