Once selected, NZSSC members commit to:

  • Attending all scheduled rehearsals. Rehearsals are held during each school holiday from late January 2019 to July 2020. Dates will be confirmed upon acceptance into the choir. Members can only be excused from rehearsals with a request in advance to the NZSSC Music Director via the Executive Officer. Leave may be approved for pre-arranged international trips, international school tours, national representation.
  • Being available to tour internationally in April 2020 (NZSSC tours have previously been in July)
  • Covering costs associated with travel and rehearsals, which are equalised among all members and kept to a minimum through funding from agencies such as Creative New Zealand as well as trusts and sponsorship. NZSSC membership costs for the full 2019-2020 cycle will be approximately $6,500 including the international tour.
