Sunny and Hattie selected for national choir

Wednesday the 17th of February, 2021

Two of our talented Year 12 students Hattie Johnston and Sunny Zhang have been selected for New Zealand’s best loved national choir, the New Zealand Secondary Students' Choir, for 2021 -2022.

Our Director of Choirs, Rachel Sutherland, is Assistant Director and vocal consultant for this fabulous choir and said the year got off to a great start with an intensive weekend for the National Choral Academy at the Aotea Centre.


The NZSSC got to work alongside Voices NZ Chamber Choir and the National Youth Choir to begin preparing for Carmina Burana, which will be the first concert to feature all three choirs performing together. 

Both girls loved the weekend and are really looking forward to their two years with NZSSC - a highlight will be singing at the televised ANZAC National Memorial service in Wellington later this year.
