After a tough year which saw many of their events cancelled, including their much-anticipated international tour, the 2019-2020 NZ Secondary Students’ Choir is getting together one last time to present a week of concerts in December to audiences in Auckland and Wellington.
The NZSSC will be singing some of their favourite music from the last couple of years – including pieces by David Childs, Dan Davidson, Michael McGlynn and Stephen Rapana – as well as a few Christmas jingles for the festive season!
For the Auckland concert only, NZSSC will be joined by Simon O’Neill. A native of Ashburton, Simon began his singing career as a 1st bass in the NZ Secondary Students’ Choir and says NZSSC was the catalyst for his vocal development. Simon O’Neill is now recognised as one of the finest Heldentenors on the planet and is a Grammy-nominated recording artist with EMI, Decca and Naxos.
“The audience was enthralled and totally absorbed in everything they heard and saw, from start to finish. … Little wonder that the audience was on its feet at the end in a prolonged standing ovation in appreciation of a superb concert where all the singers continually projected the pleasure they gained from singing and sharing this with an appreciative audience.” – Hawkes Bay Today, 2018
