Nota Bella Tour

On Friday, 19 May, Nota Bella junior choir embarked on a mini concert tour for the morning. After performing at WGHS Year 9 assembly, they walked across to road to sing for the residents at ‘The Poynton Retirement Village’. The choir then continued to Milford Primary School to perform for the whole school, who were dressed up in pink for Pink Shirt Day. The Milford Primary Choir and Chinese choir sang for Nota Bella at the end of the concert, creating a wonderful collaborative space for choral music to be shared.

These were the choir’s first public concerts for the year and singers found it useful preparation towards The Big Sing Auckland Regional Festival coming up in June.

Nota Bella performed a 30 minute program incorporating a wide range of repertoire, transporting their audiences around the world. The choir enjoy learning music from different cultures and in various languages including: Laudamus Te (Vivaldi), A Dragon is in my Computer (David Hamilton – NZ Composter), Toia Mai (Trad. Samoan) and El Barquito (Trad. Venezuela).

All Westlake choirs are performing in The Big Sing in Week 9 of this term.
