Big Sing Finale 2022
After two years of cancelled Finales, everyone was thrilled to be sharing their passion for choral music with the rest of the country once again and Christchurch was buzzing with nearly 1000 excited secondary school students taking part.

St Cecilia Singers, our premier auditioned choir were honoured to be awarded Gold. Choral Director, Rachel Sutherland, is leaving after 18 years at Dio and to go out on a Gold was a fitting tribute to the dedication shown to the choirs over the years.

Divinitus, our combined choir with Dilworth School were awarded Silver and had the very special honour of winning the Auahi Kore Māori Performance Award for E Rangi e.

Taituwha King composed and gifted this beautiful waiata to the choir which will be forever treasured. A big shout out to Choral Directors, Lachlan Craig & Claire Caldwell.

And a huge thank you to all the choristers who have worked so hard over the last few months – it’s been a tough journey but definitely paid off with each and every student shining on stage.

Well done everyone!
