A Bulletin from
Choirs Aotearoa NZ Trust May Special Edition 2016

New Zealand Youth Choir
2016 European Landmark Tour


Nobody got all the answers to the quiz completely correct: Big Ben is not in London but in the City of Westminster* – throughout our tour publicity we gave clues to this.
The correct answers were (from left to right):
Landmark 1 Big Ben City of Westminster
Landmark 2 Windsor Castle Town of Windsor
Landmark 3 Eiffel Tower City of Paris
Landmark 4 Radcliffe Camera City of Oxford
Landmark 5 Charles Bridge City of Prague

The incoming Chief Executive of Choirs Aotearoa, Arne Herrmann, made the draw on 13 May from the highest scoring competitors.

The prize entitles each winner to $100-worth of goods off the Marbeck’s website and the winners are:
Alex Matangi and Eins Lee both of Auckland and an anonymous winner from Wellington.
Congratulations to the winners.

*One contestant pointed out that ‘Big Ben’ is the name of the Great Bell not the clock – correct – and the Clock Tower (often referred to as ‘Big Ben’) was renamed the ‘Elizabeth Tower’ to celebrate the Diamond Jubilee of Elizabeth II in 2012. We would have accepted both of these descriptions but not that Big Ben (or even Windsor Castle) is in the City of London!
