Tauranga Arts Festival will be officially opened by a dawn chorus: we will be singing a waiata to the sun rising across the sea in celebration of our people, place and our artists.

Tauranga Arts Festival will be officially opened by a dawn chorus: we will be singing a waiata to the sun rising across the sea in celebration of our people, place and our artists. Tauranga Arts Festival commissioned local composer Teraania Ormsby-Teki and celebrated performer Ria Hall to create a special waiata to be learned by school and adult choirs who will perform with us all on Wednesday 18 October.

To get involved, be sent music or to organise a practice session with Ria, contact Nikki on nikki.hansen@taurangafestival.co.nz

Tī, tī, tī, tipi tei ī tei...i

Tī, tī, tī, tipi tei ī tei...i

Hī!

Creeping, tip toe, tip toe...!

Harken to the call, return soon!

This way,

That way, excitement on the rise

Creeping, tip toe, tip toe...!

Upon the break of day

Is the Fairies dawning dance

This way, that way

Prance and strut!

Creeping, tip toe, tip toe...!

Cold morning dew, Hautere calls

Harken to the call, return!

Morning rays pierce down

Here comes the break of day

The fairies dawning dance

Prance and strut!

Creeping, tip toe, tip toe...!

Rise!
