Sing Aotearoa is a triennial festival for choral singers involving workshops, masterclasses, concerts, and collaboration with kapa haka groups.
What is Sing Aotearoa?
Since 1990, Sing Aotearoa has been the leading festival for choral music in New Zealand. Singers from around the motu have gathered for a weekend of singing, practical workshops, and performances, directed by some of the country’s most prominent choral artists.
We’re thrilled that, for the first time, Sing Aotearoa will be held in Tāmaki Makaurau at the Dew Drop (formerly Vodafone) Events Centre in Manukau, South Auckland, from Friday 29th September to Sunday 1st October.
As one of the cultural centres of our Māori & Pasifika communities, South Auckland is the ideal location for us to come together as a singing nation, to share and celebrate the diverse singing traditions of Aotearoa New Zealand. There will be something for everyone at this festival, which is open to all ages and experience levels. Singers can register with their choir, in small groups, or as an individual. Choirs can also apply to perform at one of our informal lunchtime concerts – applications will open early 2023.
We’re delighted to announce that the Artistic Directors for Sing Aotearoa 2023 will be Dr. Igelese Ete and Jono Palmer.
