Kids for Kids Concert

New Zealanders have a proud history of raising their voices for important issues on the global stage

Last night the Saint Kentigern Singers combined with other schools to create a massed choir of 500 children in the ‘Kiwi As’ Kids for Kids Show, singing to raise awareness for those less fortunate than themselves through World Vision. 

The Kids for Kids concert series is celebrating its 23rd year. This year alone, 10,000 children around New Zealand will have had the chance to take to the stage in a variety of venues around the North Island, joining in massed choir performances that not only celebrates their musical achievements, but also encourages them to raise their voices for children in need. At each concert, the number on stage can vary from 300-1000! 

Our boys joined the concert at the Bruce Mason Theatre. Having learnt the items at school over the past few weeks the boys had a full day of rehearsal at the theatre before the evening performance. Well known performers, Jackie Clarke and Nathan King, hosted a brilliant show of singing and actions to popular Kiwi music. Dressed in vibrant colours, the boys showed energy and enthusiasm on stage and joined the ‘Mod Squad’ dancers and the ukelele players for special items. It was a concert thoroughly enjoyed by all, with funds raised for a worthy cause.
