Kapa Haka update
We welcomed a new tutor joining us this year called Whaea Ange, she has a lifetime of Māori Performing Arts experience and has really helped the group with blending melody and harmonies. Our School Service involved performing for the Race Unity Assembly in Term 1 after only 2 practices to showcase an example of Māori culture. It was quite difficult because of the short amount of preparation, although the end result was well received.
The rehearsed go-to set of waiata are quite well known and have been popular within primary, junior and senior school and also within the general mainstream community.
Hallelujah/Hareruia - has a focus on vocal, harmonizing, blends, volume control - it's a choral piece, song of praise.
