Help us to continue to support our finest young voices
The New Zealand Secondary Students Choir is dependent on the generous support of our sponsors and donors.
To ensure the very best young voices have the opportunity to be part of this life-changing choir, we believe there should be no barrier to entry. Each two-year membership cycle costs the choir about $600,000; membership fees cover about half of this, while the other half must be raised through grants and donations. We also assist several students with personal membership fees to ensure the choir is truly national and not limited to those who can afford it.
