New England Sings! Postponed until 2021
2020 NEW ENGLAND SINGS!
Dear NECOM Schools, Choirs, AYO and audiences
It is with much regret that NECOM’s flagship choral project must be postponed to 2021 due to ongoing COVID-19 restrictions. We are very disappointed but our commissioned composers have already composed wonderful works that we look to premiering next year. A new date will be announced in the coming months. Ticket holders who have booked seats will be contacted in the next few days with a refund.
Sunday 18 October, Concert 1@11am; Concert email@example.com
New England Sings! is NECOM’s acclaimed, national award-winning choral showcase that brings together over 800 K-Year 12 choristers from 28+ schools across the New England and an 80+ community orchestra to present two sensational concerts on Sunday 18 October at 11am and 2.30pm.
The concerts celebrate the love of singing and Australian choral music, in addition to premiering commissioned works written specially for the Combined Primary Schools Choirs, the Combined Secondary Choir and Orchestra and for the first time, the Side-by-Side Choir. Many Australian composers and songs are featured, from new commissions by Luke Byrne and Justin Clarke to John Farnham’s classic Australian rock anthem ‘You’re The Voice’, complete with bagpipes!
New England Sings! is an unmissable musical event, a testimony to the New England’s unique music education community and commitment by schools to make music a part of every student’s life.
