Prestigious Scholarship for College Student

May 09, 2013 at 8:16 AM

Manase Latu is well known at the College for his magnificent singing voice. Last year he was selected for the University of Auckland Chamber Choir, a choir that comprises mostly University of Auckland students and graduates who work as professional performers, making Manase’s accomplishment all the more significant.

This year, Manase has successfully auditioned for and will be the recipient of the University of Auckland George Wilson Memorial Junior Scholarship.  This allows him to commence his vocal training and study at the University while he is still in Year 13.  His lessons will be funded completely by the scholarship. He will be studying with the Head of Performance and Head of Voice Studies, Dr. Te Oti Rakena and this will lead him into a Bachelor of Music in Performance Voice next year.
