We’re ready to launch the first phase of our exciting new virtual choir project, Kids Online Singalong! in partnership with MENZA (Music Education New Zealand Aotearoa).
The project is open to all New Zealand primary and intermediate school choirs and involves each group learning the same piece, recording it, and sending it in so that we can create one massed virtual choir from all the videos to share on the NZCF YouTube channel.
The piece we’ve chosen for this project is We Are One by Sophie Brown, a Year 12 student at Epsom Girls’ Grammar School in Auckland with multiple songwriting successes already to her credit. We Are One is the winning entry in this year’s Hook, Line and Sing-A-Long competition, run by the New Zealand Music Commission in partnership with MENZA.
