In Tune Songwriting Competition Awards

The 2016 In Tune Songwriting  Competition  came to a spectacular finale on the weekend with eleven finalists all performing their songs in the award’s concert. Sponsored by APRA and Musicworks, the competition was open to all songwriters in Canterbury year 11, 12 & 13 Secondary school students and Ara Music Arts students.

Historically, Christchurch has produced an amazing past line of songwriting talent, with artists like Bic Runga, Anika Moa and Julia Deans all hailing from here. And so it was that this year’s song entries were strong, creating a difficult challenge for judges Delaney Davidson and Al Park.

Soloists, duos and bands all shared their songs with a large supportive audience, all vying for the competition awards.

This year’s winner was Sarena Hurley from Music Arts and the runner’s up were

Ashy Batchelor (St Margaret’s College) Micah Heath (Burnside High) and Frances Daly (Music Arts)
