Choir competition registrations open
Registrations are open for the Samoa Voice Choir competition which is taking place at next month’s Pasifika Festival.
The Samoa village will host the competition on March 10 at Western Springs Park.
It is an opportunity for all Samoan choirs to showcase their musical talents.
‘‘Samoans love singing,’’ Samoa village coordinator Te’eva Matafai says.
‘‘This competition aims to unite the Samoan community in fellowship and celebration.’’
It is open to Samoan choirs from across the country. Choirs are expected to prepare two pieces, one of which must be in Samoan.
A panel of guest judges will decide on the winner of the main prize – a studio recording.
Contact Simon Matafai on 027 471 9327 or simonmatafai@gmail. com for information and registration papers.
Registrations close February 23 and cost $100 per choir.
