APPA Choir

On Wednesday the 18th the Tamaki Intermediate School Choir went to the Auckland Town Hall to take part in the annual APPA mass choir festival along with many other schools.

This was the big final after practicing all year and attending all the practices.

On the way there we were all eager and we singing all the songs so we would not forget the lyrics. When we arrived there we went inside and went onto the stage. Firstly we lined up on stage with all the other schools and then took photos. After that we took our seats. We felt happy but a bit scared as we were up high by the organs. Then the lights went dim and the orchestra came out to their seats. Next the conductor came out and we started our fist item which was the national anthem. We were under way and got to sing all our songs. Everyone enjoyed it when the Kapa Haka Group came on and performed. While we were on stage there were people all around in the town hall waving to us and taking photos. It was so hot sitting there with the bright lights shinning down on us.

On the way back everyone was tired. We went back along the scenic route down Queen Street and along the water front to Orakei. Over all it was a memorable night for us all. We would like to thank Miss Dekker and Miss Hess for teaching us and Miss Waetford and Mrs. Bailey for coming with us to the town hall.
