Cadenza dates and venues announced

Cadenza, the ‘next best thing to The Big Sing Finale’ will be launched this August in Rotorua (please note the change in dates!), Whanganui and Timaru.

Cadenza enables 36 competing choirs from across New Zealand to experience the buzz of a Finale-style event, with the added dimension of massed workshops with an international choral conductor who will also perform the role of adjudicator. These two-day events will culminate in a public gala concert allowing all the choirs to showcase an item from their Cadenza repertoire and to sing together music rehearsed with our international guest.

For 2019, the Cadenza centres, dates, venues and coordinators are as follows:

Region Dates Venue Coordinator(s)
South Island: Timaru Friday 16 & Saturday 17 August Craighead School (competitive sessions)

Theatre Royal (gala)

Lucy Dillon
Lower North Island: Whanganui Monday 19 & Tuesday 20 August Royal Whanganui Opera House Edwyna McDonald
Upper North Island: Rotorua Sunday 25 & Monday 26 August Bay Trust Forum in the Energy Events Centre Elizabeth Pilaar & Ann-Elise Miles
