On Thursday 24 September the Performing Arts Centre at Sacred Heart College in Lower Hutt reverberated with the sound of school choirs performing again.
The Mini Sing brought together choirs from Sacred Heart College, Heretaunga College, Wai Ora Montessori School, Hutt International Boys School’, St Patrick’s College Silverstream and St Mary’s College Wellington for a few fun-filled hours of singing. Each choir had a chance to perform their own pieces, which they had managed to learn despite all the disruptions to their school year. The Mini Sing concluded with the students joining together to learn and perform the African-American spiritual ‘I’m Gonna Sing’.
The day was a joyous celebration of music-making and we are grateful to Rosemary Russell and Sacred Heart College for hosting the event.
