 TBS 2019 Finalists and Cadenza Choirs


Categories of Musical Styles

As of 2020, we are abolishing Category Three (Other Styles) and will be replacing it with a Director’s Choice ‘category’, which includes all styles that were previously included in Category Three (Other Styles), as well as New Zealand Composition/Arrangement and Choral Art Music – in other words, all choral music. There will be no change to Category One (New Zealand Composition/Arrangement) and Category Two (Choral Art Music (non-New Zealand)

The requirements for competing choirs at each level of the competition will be as follows:

Regionals (3 pieces in total)

  • 1 x Category One piece
  • 1 x Category Two piece
  • 1 x Director’s Choice piece (all genres of choral music, including but not limited to Categories One and Two)

Note: Arrangements of popular music do not belong in Category One but fall under Director’s Choice.

Cadenza (4 pieces in total)

  • At least 1 Category One piece (max 2*)
  • At least 1 Category Two piece (max 2*)
  • 2 x Director’s Choice pieces (all genres of choral music, including but not limited to Categories One and Two)

*A maximum of 2 pieces from Category One and a maximum of 2 pieces from Category Two.

Finale (5 pieces in total)

  • At least 1 Category One piece (max 3*)
  • At least 2 Category Two pieces (max 3*)
  • 2 x Director’s Choice pieces (all genres of choral music, including but not limited to Categories One and Two)

* A maximum of 3 pieces from Category One and a maximum of 3 pieces from Category Two.

Note that the only repertoire restriction on Director’s Choice pieces is when the maxima for the other two categories have been reached.

Any queries regarding the matching of pieces to category criteria should be referred to the TBS National Director John Rosser: john.rosser@nzcf.org.nz
