Chorus Rehearsals and Shows are Cancelled

The covid-19 lockdown has necessitated us to cancel chorus rehearsals until further notice.

Similarly, Covid-19 restrictions on maximum sizes of 
gatherings have forced us to cancel the following events:

  • our concert at Howick's Uxbridge theatre on May 3
  • our concert at the Centrestage theatre in Orewa on May 17. 
  • the PanPacific 2020 Convention in Auckland on September 13-15

This page will always have an up-to-date status report on the resumption of rehearsals and other chorus events.

Updated  30th March 2020


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 are suspended, but we are continuing with "virtual" rehearsals with the aid of computers and the Internet.

The Chorus wishes all our supporters 
the best as we fight this thing together.  

Please stay safe in your bubbles!
