We have formed a Nelson Youth Choir:
to generate a love of singing in a choir.
to provide the opportunity for members to be taught the art of choral singing.
to produce choral music of a high standard.
We have completed three rounds of auditions and have started rehearsals.
The Nelson Youth Choir will enhance music activities in your school, and is designed to be about fun, accuracy and excellence.
The repertoire is varied and includes all musical styles.
Who are we?
We are a team who have experience, networks, and a track record of success:
Conductor/Teacher: Nigel Weeks QSM
Conductor/Teacher: Zoë Dee
Business Manager: Sally Hallmark
Why does Nelson need a Youth Choir?
There is a fine tradition of music and singing in Nelson, with Nelson schools well represented in winning top awards for their choirs in New Zealand (The Big Sing and Cadenza). However, Nelson City does not currently have a viable and visible Youth Choir, as do other cities.
