2022 Cadenza & Finale Choirs Announced


We are thrilled that all nine of our regional The Big Sing festivals were able to go ahead without disruption this year, following a challenging first term navigating rehearsals under Covid restrictions. Our three adjudicators and audiences around Aotearoa enjoyed a series of vibrant, varied, and skilled performances, and we heartily congratulate every choir who participated in The Big Sing this year.

Please find below the final list of choirs involved in the 2022 Cadenza and Finale festivals, listed in alphabetical order. Congratulations to all who were selected! NOTE: These final lists have incorporated the updated reserve choirs who moved into Cadenza and Finale following the RSVP deadline.
