First rehearsal of the year is on Monday 25th January 2021, 7:30pm.

Balmoral Bowling Club, 14 Mont Le Grand Rd

  Chorus rehearsals back to the new normal in 2021  
  Despite the upheaval caused by Covid-19 in 2020, the chorus managed to keep quite busy in the closing few months of the year.  We start 2021 on the 25th of January with a more-or-less "normal" year ahead - just minus anybody from overseas - at this stage.

If you are interested in joining the chorus or coming along to a rehearsal, you are welcome to do so.  Please email us.

The Chorus takes the health of our members seriously.  If you wish to attend a rehearsal we ask that you:
  • Sign in with the Covid tracer app using the QR code at the venue.
  • Respect the physical space of others.
  • STAY HOME if you are unwell, and of course, get a test if you are experiencing any Covid-like symptoms.

The Chorus is resuming rehearsals from

7:30 p.m. January 25th 2021

We LOVE visitors!  All are welcome along to listen/sing/try your hand at what we do 
 2020 was a year of surprises!  After celebrating our 40th birthday year (2019) with a win at the national competitions we were looking forward to hosting an Auckland Pan-Pacific in 2020. 

As the NZ champion chorus in 2019, we would stand down from competition for the following year - which suited us, as we had a big convention to organise.

Covid had other ideas.

 We moved to Zoom rehearsals but did manage to sing at a few rest homes (one gig was cancelled twice because of lockdowns, but we got there in the end on our third attempt!).

We finished 2020 with our usual carols at Auckland Hospital, and a punishing (but enjoyable) set of 15 2-hour carols sessions at West City Mall in Henderson, where we set a world record (not yet ratified) for the number of performances of "Joy to the World" in one day.
