Central Otago Mirror - - NEWS - By CHE BAKER

Wanaka, Alexan­dra and Queen­stown will be the back­drop for spe­cial per­for­mances by the New Zealand Sec­ondary Stu­dents’ Choir this week. The in­ter­na­tion­ally awarded na­tional choir will present a mix of cho­ral mu­sic from clas­si­cal, folk and jazz with singing of the high­est in­ter­na­tional stan­dards. A re­hearsal show will be held in Queen­stown tomorrow be­fore full per­for­mances were held in Wanaka on Fri­day night and Alexan­dra on Satur­day night. The choir was made up of high school stu­dents from 38 schools across the coun­try and Dunstan High School stu­dent Lauren Ross was the only lo­cal singer in the 60 strong line-up and will sing so­prano. ‘‘I am proud and ex­cited to share beau­ti­ful Cen­tral Otago with other choir mem­bers, as well as show­ing my lo­cal com­mu­nity what it’s like to be in­volved in such a top choir,’’ she said.
