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. Following the Big Sing Finale in September 2018, Andrew is leaving this role which he has held for 10 years. We are seeking a new MD for 2019 and beyond.
A standing ovation for this fabulous choir ... Bravo!'
Rosemary Collier, reviewer, April 2018.
