Rebecca Nelson






Join us for a very special evening with Rebecca Nelson

Classical singer and member of the Royal New Zealand Navy Band, Rebecca Nelson, is set to release her new album, Poppies & Pōhutukawa, on April 7 and we are delighted to have Rebecca as our guest speaker on Wednesday 12th April.
Rebecca’s determination and love for her craft has taken her on the unusual path from busker to performing for royalty (Prince Charles and Prince Harry), singing alongside fellow Kiwis Sol3 Mio and national anthems at international rugby matches, performing at ANZAC commemorations at Gallipoli in 2015 and in France at the 100 year commemorations of the Battle of the Somme last year.
