Audition results for the Gondwana National Choral School are out! Congratulations to the following 17 choristers from Armidale who successfully auditioned for this prestigious two-week choral training school in January 2020.
Mauatua Barff, Anoushka Byrne, Teya Catterall, Delphi Collins, Gabrielle Cotterell, Holly Dauparas, Alexander Gibson, Tiko Lay, Eloise Gooch, Esther Lindeman, William Mackson, Erin Page, India Smith, Abigail Thompson and Clare Warwick. In addition, NECOM alumni Oliver and Jonathan Bruhl have won a place in the senior Gondwana Chorale.
Gondwana held a full day of auditions at NECOM on 31 August as the Armidale/New England region is renowned for its choral programs. Armidale is one of only two regional centres in Australia chosen by Gondwana to host auditions due to the large number of students who apply. Auditions are held nationally and are extremely competitive as only 300 young singers are selected – Armidale will be very well represented by our 17 choristers in January 2020.
