We're off to The Big Sing National Finale!Congratulations to the Takapuna Grammar School Chorale, and to Leonessa, who have been selected to compete at The Big Sing National Finale held in Dunedin from 29-31 August.
For the first time, two Takapuna Grammar School choirs have been selected to compete at this prestigious competition. Only 24 choirs across New Zealand are selected for the National Finale. TGS is one of just three secondary schools in New Zealand who have more than one choir attending.
From the Head Choristers...
TGS Chorale Head Chorister, Volkan Özyurteri:
“I am so extremely proud to be representing our school nationally down in Dunedin! The hard-work, energy, passion, and skill we have has helped us come to this point. Now, it’s time to take ourselves to the next level, showing New Zealand what Takapuna Grammar has to offer. Just wait and see!”
Leonessa Head Chorister, Felicity Lewis:
“We’re thrilled to have the opportunity to attend the finale again this year and immerse ourselves in the beautiful music all the choirs perform. This is our first year having both of TGS’s elite choirs attend the national finale, so we are extra excited! We look forward to working on more great repertoire to perform at the Dunedin Town Hall and are very grateful to the music team at TGS for facilitating this great success!”
