Come and hear what some call Auckland's best kept secret, in an innovative and enjoyable choral event not to be missed. An innovative programme will be presented by the choir showcasing the unique cultural blend of its voices, and our talented guest performers; the quartet of Polynesian opera singers, Operanesia, Aototune - a mixed voice choir from Aorere College, and the One Tree Hill College Chorale - a male vocal ensemble. This will be an evening of inspiring choral music at its finest.

The Graduate Choir NZ had its genesis in South Auckland, evolving as a choir for school leavers - particularly from Aorere College where the choir's Director, Terence Maskell, had been HOD Music. This recital is one way of saying thank you to the community that supported and nurtured the early days of the choir's development.

Special guests include:
Operanesia, an operatic quartet who together create a fusion of Opera and Polynesia! They bring a wide range of music to the stage with operas arias, operatic favourites and popular songs of past eras. Two of these singers are former Graduate Choir NZ members and another member Benson Wilson has just won the prestigious New Zealand Lexus Song Quest.

AOtotune is Aorere College's newest mixed-voice choir. It comprises students from Year 9 - 13 and is directed by HOD Music David Tipi. Recently AOtotune competed in the national secondary schools' choral competition The Big Sing, taking a Highly Commended Award.

The One Tree Hill College Chorale was formed in 2012 with boys from Year 9 - 13. In 2014 and again this year, the choir was selected for the Finale of The Big Sing and in 2015 it was invited to record for TVNZ's Praise Be.

Presented by: The Graduate Choir NZ.
