Nicholas Ryan

Nic’s passion for singing began in 2011 performing with the Christchurch Boys’ Choir.

Through his time at intermediate school he improved his music skills performing with choirs, bands and jazz ensembles. He successfully auditioned for the Burnside High School Specialist Music Programme where he discovered a new world of performance opportunities in different singing groups including the three times National Champion high school barbershop chorus 'Malestrom'; the multi-award winning chorus 'Senior Chorale'; and the 2017 fifth nationally ranked high school barbershop quartet 'The Barbershop Courgette'.

At Burnside High he continues to develop his passion for performing jazz, singing with combos and playing keys in the Funk Band. Recently he sang as a featured soloist for the Burnside High School Big Band and SMP Strings ensemble.

Nic has also performed in many musicals, stage shows and operas including Noye’s Fludde, La bohème, Elf and the Showbiz Christchurch concert Broadway Hitmen.
