The Big Sing 2024

The Big Sing 2024

The NZCF Big Sing Auckland Regionals took place during Week 8, and our Westlake choristers had a lot of fun presenting their recitals on the grand stage of the Auckland Town Hall.

Auckland is the largest region in the country, with 75 high school choirs competing over three days. Each choir performs three pieces for an adjudicator before an evening celebration Gala concert.

One of the festival’s highlights is appreciating the work of other choirs around Auckland and enjoying a wide range of musical styles.

Congratulations to our Westlake choirs – Cantare, Choralation, Cigno Voce, and Nota Bella and the staff involved: Fiona Wilson, James Harrison, Yun-Pai Hsu, Rachel Carson, Anny Yu, Gnesyer Gomez, Elise Bradley, Sofia Onishko and Kate Webber.

Westlake was fortunate to receive these awards:
Nota Bella: Best Recital for a Junior Choir
Voicemale: runners up Best Recital for Lower Voice Choir
Choralation: Best Recital for Mixed Voice Choir
Cantare: Best Recital for an Upper Voice Choir & Adjudicator’s Award for Best performance of a single work.

Cantare and Choralation have made it into the top 24 choirs to compete at the National Finale in Wellington this August.
