Over the school holidays, Lila Nicolson (12MNJ) toured New Zealand with the New Zealand Secondary School Choir.
The choir left on 16th July to tour for two weeks, and arrived home on the last Sunday of the holidays. A long, enjoyable and valuable learning opportunity for Lila.
The NZSS choir found out last week that they have achieved the honour of being appointed the best youth choir in the world. They gained this honour by sending in their work along with other top youth choirs from around the world via the internet. They usually tour Europe every two years but due to Covid have not been able to go this year.
Lila attended the NZSS choir concert on the 15th July in Christchurch as part of their tour before they move on to Wanaka. The concert was exceptional and showcased the students hard work over the last two years.
Radio New Zealand recorded the concert and will be playing it over the coming weeks.
A big congratulations to Lila and the New Zealand Secondary School Choir and all the best for upcoming tours.
