|2019 was a big year for us. We marked 40 years as a chorus with a couple of retrospective annual shows and a function attended by as many members and former members as we could find.
We capped it off by winning the national title at the annual contest in Christchurch - a crowning achievement for the hard-working guy on the left.
So City of Sails is taking a year off - not resting on our laurels by any means - we did have a Pan-Pacific convention to organise, but PanPac became another casualty of COVID-19, along with our annual shows.
City of Sails physical rehearsals were suspended during lockdown, but we continued with "virtual" rehearsals with the aid the Internet, and managed to learn a few new songs as well!
The Chorus is resuming normal rehearsals from
7:30 p.m. June 15th, 2020.
We LOVE visitors! All are welcome along to
listen/sing/try your hand at what we do.
We are a bunch of guys who love getting together to sing!
The City of Sails Barbershop Chorus is an all-male a cappella vocal ensemble who sing in the barbershop style.
All our rehearsals are open to the public and to potential new members, so why not pay us a visit?
We rehearse every Monday evening gat 7pm, at the Balmoral Bowling Club, 14 Mont Le Grand Road, Mount Eden. Rehearsals were suspended for the covid-19 lockdown, but are starting again from 15th June 2020 with the move to Level 1.
Why not hire City of Sails Barbershop Chorus to entertain at your next event? We can perform at corporate functions, charity events, community Entertainment events, birthday parties, christmas parties, awards nights, weddings, engagements, anniversaries, engagements, and even funerals and memorial services.
