by Liz McDowell - Wednesday, 21 June 2017, 12:51 PM

Congratulations to Cantrices, the school's auditioned choir, directed by Kaitlyn Tinworth, who competed at the Regional Big Sing Choral Festival this week.

They were awarded the prize for Outstanding Performance of a NZ Composition for their song 'Poem from War' by Sarah McCallum. Through the use of vocal imagery the piece describes the haunting realities of war. Samantha Hickford showcased her talents as the featured soloist and the choir was accompanied by Sunwoo Choe on the piano.

It was an outstanding performance by the Year 13 Business Studies company, 'GoCanteen', at the regional finals the night before last.
