If you are ever in Salt Lake City on August 14, you can walk proud in the knowledge that it is New Zealand Choir Day. The 1993 touring choir must have made an impression, because the Mayor of Salt Lake City not only issued this proclamation, but also a “Spirit of America” Award recognising that, in music, we “joined hands across the seas.”http://www.tecwynevans.com

BASS 1995-1999

The choir for me has been very beneficial, not only for my musical and theoretical skills, but also my ability to listen, which for a solo singer is fairly important….You need a lot of skills linguistically, physically-even things like looking after the voice….which the National Youth Choir over the five years I was in it did very well
