Last holidays, Kuranui student Zoe Thurston entered the 69th annual Hutt Valley Performing Arts Competition, a three day event. She competed in the singing section, in the 14 years and Under 16 age groups.
Zoe sang older-style soprano music in seven classes, singing 8 songs and competing against 12-18 people in each class. Her successes included two 1st placings, a 2nd, two 3rd, a 4th and a 6th.
She won the Chloe Chun Trophy for winning the song in costume, the Maxwell Jarman Trophy for getting the highest amount of points in three particular classes, and the Jill McAlister Trophy for the most memorable song over the three days.
In all, it’s a fantastic achievement by Zoe and we’re looking forward to her future success in upcoming events!
