Girls College choir takes out major awards


Nelson College for Girls choir Stella Nova took out a Silver Award at the national Big Sing finals in Wellington on Saturday. The choir competed against 23 other schools and also took out the Youth Ambassadors Award.

Choral Director Rebecca Monopoli says the award is really sought after.

“It’s for the choir that best embodies the spirit of the Big Sing. It’s a real compliment to the girls that’s for sure.”

She says two of the five songs the choir performed were sung in Bulgarian and one was sung in Basque which helped to set the performance apart.
