About The Big Sing

THE BIG SING is a dynamic, national group-singing competition for secondary school students. Festivals are held in June of each year in eleven New Zealand regions. Three nationally-appointed area adjudicators travel to the regional festivals, commenting on the overall performances and providing each participating choir with a written report. At the conclusion of the regional festivals, eighteen choirs are selected to participate in THE BIG SING National Finale and compete bronze, silver, gold and platinum awards. THE BIG SING committee also chooses up to four guest choirs to attend the National Finale and receive additional workshop time.
