Cavell Leitch is thrilled to be supporting the Christchurch YMCA Y Factor Youth Talent Quest. We think it is so important to support, encourage and nurture young people within our community to allow them the opportunity to explore their passions and develop their unique talents. We believe in the important work the YMCA does and are proud to support this initiative.
This exciting event is being held at the newly established YMCA Black Box Theatre, on the YMCA Hereford Street site in central Christchurch and will feature some of the most talented 11-22 year olds the South Island has to offer.
There will be great guest judges this year, including singer/songwriter Annah Mac (who is also doing a special guest performance including her hit song "Girl in Stilettos"), Pablo Ruiz Henao – principal bass trombonist with the Christchurch Symphony Orchestra, and Anton Carter, CEO of Dance Aotearoa NZ.
The evening will be MCed by Lana Searle from MoreFM.
