Col­lege groups at bar­ber­shop event

Kapiti News - - News -

Three Ka¯ piti groups made it through to the Bar­ber­shop na­tion­als in Tau­ranga.

Top per­form­ers were the LASS quar­tet, who were run­ners-up.

This was quite an achieve­ment for the group who had a re­place­ment mem­ber, Tanira Kingi, join­ing them with Alice Ma­son un­avail­able.

So­phie said they were happy with their per­for­mance against ex­cel­lent com­pe­ti­tion.

“This is the last year of se­condary school for all of us and we are end­ing our singing ca­reer at Ka¯ piti Col­lege on a high.”

The Girls’ Cho­rus had gone to the na­tion­als as re­gional win­ners and even­tu­ally placed sev­enth.

Con­duc­tor Brid­get O’Shanessy said she thought the cho­rus had per­formed ex­cel­lently and while they were dis­ap­pointed with their re­sult, the win­ners from Ma­cleans Col­lege were out­stand­ing and had set a new stan­dard of per­for­mance.

The Boys’ Cho­rus, a com­bined Ka¯ piti and Para­pa­raumu group, had reached the fi­nals as a wild­card en­try, but were hand­i­capped by the un­avail­abil­ity of the Para­pa­raumu stu­dents.

The group were happy to place fifth de­spite this.
