Senior Treble Voices Festival

We celebrated our choral community throughout June! WGHS hosted the Senior Treble Voices Festival 2024 – it was fabulous that a record number of nine choirs attended! Three hundred singers came together from Long Bay College, Epsom Girls, Takapuna Grammar, Carmel College, Rangitoto College, Diocesan School, Westlake Girls – and our guest choir Cantabile, visiting from Silicone Valley, California.

Each choir participated in a workshop with one of three clinicians – Jono Palmer, Dr Karen Grylls and Elena Sharkova (USA)- rehearsing four pieces for a massed choir performance in the evening. Elise and I  are thrilled that this festival is developing from strength to strength – building community and collaboration into our choirs’ experience is vital! We look forward to doing it all again at our Term Three Junior Festival.
