Our National Choir
New Zealand's finest young choral voices
'Life-changing! Amazing, enriching; the best two years of my life,' NZSSC member.
The New Zealand Secondary Students Choir is the national choir for 13 to 18 year olds. It gathers the country’s finest young voices and offers them a once in a lifetime opportunity, a two-year membership to learn from top New Zealand vocal teachers and consultants.
NZSSC performs a wide variety of music, including many works from New Zealand composers. The current Musical Director is Andrew Withington.
'A standing ovation for this fabulous choir, who astonished mere adults with their skill, memory, and multi-lingual performance. Bravo!'
Rosemary Collier, reviewer, April 2018.
