Helta Scelta moves audience


Friday night was a first for Sancta Maria College as our vocal group Helta Scelta performed at the Vodafone Events Centre in the final of Stand Up Stand Out. Helen Pahulu, Lauren Chalk, Adora Rodrigues, Catherine Vaiangina and Anton Vargas performed their moving rendition of ‘Oceans’ as one of only four finalists in the group vocal category.

Their performance was wonderful – again our students were a credit to the school – and matched the astonishingly high standards of the twenty other acts who were on stage that night. The audience were clearly moved as Helta Scelta’s singing prompted a flurry of mobile phone lights to spread across the darkness in the best tradition of arena concerts.

Sancta Maria College is showing the people of Auckland that its music students can mix it with the best and we hope to hear much more of this fine music in the future.
