Touring is a way of enabling our Choir to reach greater heights. It requires that our choristers extend themselves to reach a standard that is worthy of sharing with an audience that is wider than the 'home crowd'. Our girls have to leave the comforts of home and family to face the great unknown, often in a foreign land, and to cope with the stresses of being "always on the go" while on tour.
But, our girls are a hardy lot and there is no question that they will cope with these demands and prove to be the worthy ambassadors of Auckland, New Zealand that they are.
This tour to USA came about through our association with music clinician, Andy Eisenmann, at the 2016 World Projects Australian International Music Festival, which we attended. We got to know Andy very well and shared a similar vision of the role of music in the development of our youth.
And right there was the genesis of this tour.
