Eliette roslin - CEO
Eliette Roslin started her career in the Australian Girls Choir at the age of 5 and from there she grew to love music, singing and performance. In 2005 she featured on the "I Still Call Australia Home" Qantas Ad and performed regularly with the choir at many public events.
Throughout school Eliette was heavily involved in all aspects of the arts from drama, music and dance. She continued her studies when she moved to Amsterdam at the age of 18 to train with Setske Mostaert and Karin Bloemen. She then moved to Sydney, age 19, to study at the Australian Institute of Music and completed her Bachelor of Contemporary Performance, Majoring in Vocals. She released her EP, "Black Kisses" in 2016 and continues to write music.
It was with much excitement and anticipation when Eliette launched The New Zealand Girls Choir. It was something she wanted to do for a long time as she wanted to bring the pleasure she had from a young age when she was singing in choirs, to girls from all ages.
Eliette is a great believer in the Orff style of teaching and in the way it brings music to young people. Orff is unique in the way that it brings music, movement, drama and speech and is able to take away the barrier that so often exists between teaching and learning.
The New Zealand Girls Choir’s repertoire is aimed at modern POP music. We want to sing music the girls already know, understand and connect with and artists like Katy Perry or Adele are high on the list. Why not sing songs the girls love and sing in the back of the car, it makes total sense to NZGC.
To Eliette, everyone can sing with the correct support and education and she is thoroughly excited to see the New Zealand Choir grow
