Farewell Concert - TOWER New Zealand Youth Choir

Farewell Concert - TOWER New Zealand Youth Choir



Sunday June 20th, 3pm – Baradene College, Remuera, Auckland

TOWER New Zealand Youth Choir will be presenting a farewell concert before embarking on its month-long tour of Europe.

The concert will be attended by guests from Creative New Zealand, TOWER Ltd, and choir supporters. It promises to be an emotional event as the final performance on New Zealand soil for some members of the choir, and an exciting one for the public who will get a chance to hear some of the Choir’ s tour repertoire – including pieces they will take into competition in Italy.

The month-long tour will take in festivals and cultural events in Singapore (en route), Slovenia, Italy, Hungary and Russia. In Gorizia, Northern Italy, the choir will once again compete for international honours against the best choirs in the world at the 43rd International Choral Competition – part of the European ‘Grand Prix’ for Choral Singing.

For the Choir, the tour also provides the opportunity to showcase New Zealand and New Zealand music to the world as cultural ambassadors. The cross-fertilisation and collaborations with choirs from these countries will extend our best young singers both musically and culturally.

The TOWER New Zealand Youth Choir was established to promote choral singing of the highest standard among young New Zealanders, and members of the choir come from all corners of the country. In its 25-year existence it has achieved a remarkable number of awards and accolades, including the ‘Grand Prix’ in Slovakia, and the ‘Choir of the World’ award at the International Musical Eisteddfod in Wales, both on its highly successful European tour in 1999.
