New Zealand Secondary Students' Choir 2020 perform in Lower Hutt Town Hall, Wellington, 18 December 2020.
In December 2020 the New Zealand Secondary Students’ Choir came together in Wellington for a week of rehearsals and concerts. This was the first time the choir was able to meet since the beginning of 2020 and the cancellation of their first European tour.
In spite of the challenges thrown up by the Covid-19 pandemic, the choir chose to make the occasion a celebration – of what they’d learned, the music they love and the amazing people they’ve met along the way.
