SUCCESS FOR DUNSTANZA SENIOR GIRLS AT BIG SING FINALE IN AUCKLAND [Thu, 7 September 2017]

The Dunstanza Senior Girls achieved a Silver Medal at the recently held Big Sing National Finale in Auckland. The judges said of the choir. "A well presented and well prepared recital, you can be proud of your first Finale appearance. Well done."

They were also awarded the Auahi Kore Award for their presentation of a piece of music in Te Reo. Robert Wiremu the judge for this award said of the choir: "Congratulations! You have such a beautiful, delicate core to your sound. The irony of a choir from a provincial South Island School bringing a Ngati Whatua piece to the homeland of Ngati Whatua is not lost on me. Finally my quality test is based in the integrity of the pianissimo (quiet singing). Pianissimo is the basis of all beautiful sound. Without it, all else is noise. In this regard you are masters."
