New England Sings! To go ahead in 2021
New England Sings! is NECOM’s acclaimed, national award-winning choral showcase that brings together over 800 K-Year 12 choristers and an 80+orchestra from schools all across the New England region to present two sensational concerts at Lazenby Hall, UNE. New England Sings! is an unmissable musical event, a testimony to the New England’s unique music and education community.
The concerts celebrate the love of singing and feature many well-known songs, in addition to premiering commissioned works written specially for the Combined Primary Schools Choirs and for the Combined Secondary Choir and Orchestra. Many Australian composers and songs are featured, from new commissions to John Farnham’s You’re The Voice, complete with bagpipes!
Due to the ongoing health crisis NECOM's 2020 New England Sings! has been postponed to 2021, date yet to be confirmed.
