Kia Ora and Welcome to New Zealand! 

We are excited to present you the opportunity to join us for WSCM2020.

We’d like to welcome you to the World Symposium on Choral Music 2020, which is being held in one of the most beautiful parts of the world, in Auckland, New Zealand. The teams at WSCM2020, Tour Time and Music Celebrations International have worked together to provide you with options to travel to NZ with your choir to attend the Symposium, we also have an exceptional range of travel options and an extended tour menu with the option for regional concerts to really make the most of your stay in New Zealand during this trip of a life time.

New Zealand (Aotearoa) is the youngest country on earth. It is often referred to as “The World in Miniature.” You’ll find a variety of awe inspiring landscapes in New Zealand, all within easy reach of each other. You can swim, surf and ski all on the same day!

Spectacular glaciers, picturesque fiords, rugged mountains, vast plains, rolling hillsides, subtropical forest, volcanic plateau, miles of coastline with stunning sandy beaches – it’s all here. It is no wonder that it appears as a bucket list destination for millions of people worldwide.

Welcome to the Youngest Country on Earth.

“The greatest trip of our lives”

"You may think the Selwyn College choir had a good time in New Zealand. I can assure you they had a great time!

It was truly a memorable experience. Sarah concluded her tour report for the College with words such as, "We are so grateful to Tour Time and everyone who helped to make this trip possible – for many of us, it has been the greatest trip of our lives." .. I am sure she spoke for everyone.”

Rev Dr Philip Raymond, Tour Chaplain, Selwyn Chapel Choir, Cambridge University, UK.
