About Coral Pitcher

From her very first stage performance, dancing to an audience of 1200 at Hamilton’s Founder’s Theatre, it seemed certain that Coral Pitcher would follow a career on the stage. Three years later she returned to that very same stage as a soloist with Suzanne Prentice and the New Zealand “Kids for Kids” national concert

These early experiences focussed Coral’s life goals and ambitions. Music, quite literally became her life. Every opportunity to learn and grow as a musician was grasped with open arms. The daughter of a solo parent, there wasn’t much ready money available for lessons so Coral threw herself into school program: School Plays, choirs, guitar, piano, and vocal training were all accessed at school. Live performing experience was gained by attending music clubs and festivals, and by busking at the local market every Saturday morning.

As her confidence grew Coral began singing competitively! Starting with school singing competitions, and then moving up to regional and national competitions such as Waikato’s Young Entertainers, Battle of the Bands and Rock-Quest. Often winning or placing in the top three! In 2008 she made it to the semi-finals of TVs New Zealand’s Got Talent”
