Kiwilele Trip (NZ Ukulele Festival)

Our students had a great time in Auckland on Saturday, and although the big festival was postponed due to weather, our students had a really wonderful time. We visited the Depot Sound recording Studio, where Lorde recorded, and got to record with students from Panguru which is north of Hokianga Harbour, Northland. Some of these students will be visiting our school next year from March 31-April 2nd. They performed a powerful haka for us, and later a beautiful waiata. We got to sing through all the festival songs with Maria Winder from the NZ Ukulele Trust, and attend a fabulous workshop with Mark Jackson and Jane Jelbart from Australia. We then got a round of mini golf in before heading back to Christchurch. Photos can be seen at https://chisnallwoodmusic.org.nz/kiwilele-trip-2015/

Community Music Notices – this weekend!

Christchurch Boys Choir
My name is Nic Ryan and I have been a member of the Christchurch Boys Choir for four years. The Christchurch Boys Choir is a group of boys with unbroken voices who sing choral music at performances and once annually go on a tour to somewhere in New Zealand or sometimes even overseas. This year the choir is turning 30, and to celebrate this milestone the choir is having a gala night on Saturday 5th of December. On this night the choir will sing Benjamin Britten’s Ceremony Of Carols, which the choir has been learning for the past six months.
