Waikato / Bay of Plenty
Regional contacts in the Waikato / Bay of Plenty region
Welcome to the Waikato / Bay of Plenty regional pages - we hope that you will enjoy exploring our regional website. The Waikato / Bay of Plenty is a very active region comprising 30 choirs and numerous individual members. Every year we have a Big Sing Festival for secondary school choirs, and a Kids Sing, for primary aged choirs. Every three years we present a Sing Fest Project - involving choristers from our entire region, singing in different cities. In 2015 we presented the Mozart Requiem, conducted by David Squire. In 2019 we are presenting Haydn's Creation in 4 centres in our region. From 2019 our region became host to the Upper North Island Cadenza, a festival involving some of the best secondary school choirs who enter The Big Sing. Cadenza is held in Rotorua annually.
