Kiri Waiata - Songtrepenuer
Changing The World One Choir At A Time
One Song AT A Time
After 15 years of singing with the one community choir, Peace’n’Choir located in beautiful Mt Nebo 35 minutes from Brisbane, Kiri decided to lead her own choir. 5 years later, Kiri has been musical director for more that five choirs. Her original choir Te Tira still meets in Bardon, Brisbane.
In July 2016, Kiri launched her first songbook of original compositions for community choirs. Some are as simple as nursery rhymes, others a little more challenging. Certainly something for everyone. Her songs are now being sung from Cairns to Brisbane, London to New Zealand.
A sort after facilitator, Kiri brings fun and humour as well as learning and experiences to her workshops. Designed to suit her audience, participants are readily engaged in a space that is safe, open and inviting.
You Can't Stop The Music
Music is in my bones. And while I lead a number of choirs, I need to sing to survive. More than a decade ago, I released a CD of originals. A true journey of transformation. I have also recorded with a number of local artists, reveling in the role of Doo Wop Chick.
During all of that, I remained true to my roots and sang in a choir. I sing with two now. And with a fabulous group of women in Brisbane, The Verandah ChiX.
