The event organisers have been in touch to let us know that New Zealand Aria on Friday, 16 October 2021 at Distinction Hotel has been cancelled.
A message from the presenter:
I shall endeavour to contact you all personally in coming hours by phone call or email. Please appreciate time constraints and the volume of people to be contacted may preclude you from a personal call or email from me so please accept this communication as a personal message from me. Please share this communication with colleagues and friends,
Sadly, the trustees of the New Zealand Aria have decided to cancel the 2021 Lockwood New Zealand Aria. The trustees have worked tirelessly to address every challenge made by Covid-19 so to create a competition that kept singers, adjudicators, accompanists and the myriad of helpers and supporters safe. It has not been an easy decision.
We are indebted to our adjudicators, accompanists and in particular our major sponsors Dame Malvina Major Foundation, Lockwood, Coombes Johnston BMW and the Geyser Community Foundation for their ongoing support and acknowledgement of this difficult decision.
Our major focus must now turn to the 2022 75th Anniversary Lockwood New Zealand Aria with the Auckland Philharmonia (APO)
Be assured, these decisions have not been taken lightly, they have been made with your health, wellbeing, and safety our predominant concern. Your support and understanding is greatly appreciated in these extraordinary Covid-19 times.
Should you wish to contact me direct please call (021) 812611 or email me firstname.lastname@example.org
