The Big Sing Results 2021

2021 TBS Finale and Cadenza choirs announced


We are thrilled (and more than a little relieved!) that all 10 of our regional The Big Sing festivals were able to go ahead without disruption this year. Singers, audiences and our three adjudicators enjoyed a series of vibrant and varied performances around the country and we heartily congratulate all our participating choirs.

Since publishing the initial list on 28 June, a few choirs have advised us that they cannot take up their place and, as a consequence, some reserve choirs have moved up to take those places.  The final list is below. Congratulations to all who were selected!

Dates and Locations:

Cadenza (Lower North Island): Royal Wanganui Opera House, 13-14 August

Cadenza (Upper North Island): Rotorua Energy Events Centre, 16-17 August

Cadenza (South Island): Craighead Diocesan School & Sacred Heart Basilica, Timaru, 22-23 August

Finale: Christchurch Town Hall, 26-28 August
