This message contains important information regarding the Year 6 Choir performance in the Auckland Town Hall on Tuesday 19th November and requires a response from parents of students in the Year 6 choir. Because of this, please take the time to read through the entire message and to submit your response via the link in the last sentence.
The Year 6 Choir will be taking part in the Auckland Primary Principals Association Schools’ Annual Music Festival held in the Auckland Town Hall. The festival is held annually over 8 nights in November and is a wonderful celebration of music in which more than 4,500 children from schools throughout Auckland participate.
Our performance night is Tuesday 19th November, 7.30pm.
Parents will be responsible for organising their child’s transport to and from the Town Hall for the evening performance. Students will be required to be at the Town Hall by 7pm, and the performance is expected to finish by 9.30pm.
Ticket orders for the performance:
Tickets are available by way of a block booking and the school has been allocated a limited number of tickets. Please login to your Kindo account and select APPA tickets to purchase tickets. This year, we have been given a small window of time in which to submit our ticket requests so it is important to complete the order and payment by midnight Thursday 15th August. Please note that we can not accept late orders. If you need assistance with Kindo please call into the office.
Ticket prices are:
- Adults $15.50
- Senior Citizen/Child $10.50 (preschool to under 16 years of age)
Wheelchair access seats are available if required; please complete the question on Kindo then email me at the address below to advise of this special requirement. Tickets will be sent home with your child once the school has received them.
Once orders are in and Ticketmaster have processed the orders from all of the schools involved, there is potential for more tickets to go live with Ticketmaster. Parents will then be able to order tickets online. However, please be aware that depending on the response from the schools on our night, this may not occur if tickets are sold out. This has happened in previous years.
Choir rehearsals at other schools:
In preparation for their performance, the Year 6 choir will be attending rehearsals at various schools within the Auckland region. The first rehearsal was at CPDS but we will be traveling by bus to the remaining 4 rehearsals. Please click the link below to see the rehearsal dates and venues.
There is a transport charge to get us to and from the 4 rehearsals and as this is classed as an extra curricular activity, the total transport charge to attend all 4 rehearsals is $40 per student.
Please login to your Kindo account and select ‘Fees and Donations’ to see the charge and to make the payment. Payment is required by midnight 26th August 2019.
Your permission for your child to take part in the APPA Music Festival and permission to travel by bus to attend the rehearsals is also required. Please click the link below to give permission.
A parent helper is also needed to accompany us to each of the rehearsals. If you are available as a parent help for one of the rehearsals please write in the date/s on the space provided in the link below. Confirmation of helpers will be given once all responses have been submitted.
