The Porirua College Barbershop Mixed Quartet have only been singing together since this year and earlier this year they gained 1st place in the overall Wellington Regional Competition. This incredible accomplishment earned them a place to compete at The National Young Singers’ In Harmony Barbershop Singing Competition in Christchurch, September 10th-13th.
This is a very prestigious event and we are very proud of their huge accomplishment. When Eline Avia approached us looking for financial support, Challenge 2000 was more than happy to help the two quartets meet the competition costume and transportation costs for the trip down south to represent Porirua College.
This update from Eline:
Thank you again for your amazing support…
Our trip was memorable and we are so grateful to our sponsor for the financial support that met some of the costs of our trip.
We had the most amazing time and our students came away from the Competition knowing they had given their best as they represented our school, families and community in true PC Pride style. The experience our students gained performing at top level is something they will always fondly remember.
Our young people are amazing. During our debrief afterwards our students shared about being grateful for the lifetime connections they made with other students from around NZ and for the opportunity to compete at top level! Priceless!!
Thank you for being a part of making dreams their come true!
