Kia Ora. My name is Quillan, and I have been singing in choirs for as long as I can remember. Originally from the North Shore of Auckland, I remain based there, having attended Rangitoto College and having graduated only recently from the college in 2020. I managed to gain a place in the New Zealand Secondary Students Choir 2019-2020 cycle, which opened my eyes to the places that choral music could take me and the opportunities that it could open for me. I plan to continue my study in music at the University of Auckland in 2021. I am honoured to be a part of this cycle of the New Zealand Youth Choir, and cannot wait to develop as a choral singer and as a performer with the help of my fellow NZYC members.
