with Mahina Kingi-Kaui
At the end of the term we rolled out the intro to our new Taonga Pūoro programme with Taonga Pūoro extraordinaire, Mahina Kingi-Kaui . Mahina is a talented recording artist, composer and accomplished player of Nga Taonga Pūoro. She is also an ex-Chisnallwood student and shared how her experience of orchestra and choir at Chisnallwood led her down her musical journey. The students heard about each instrument and then got a chance to have a go themselves.
Taonga Pūoro will run next year on Fridays. Students will be able to sign up at the music office at the beginning of the year.
