Chorus rehearsals are now at

Level 3


Under level 3 restrictions we cannot hold physical rehearsals.  Active members will have been sent a link to the next upcoming Zoom rehearsal.  If you are interested in joining the online rehearsal, you are welcome to do so.  Please email us for the link.

In the meantime, please follow the Government's guidelines for Level 3:
  • Stay home, or work from home if you are able.
  • If you must go out, wear a mask when around others, sign in with the Covid Tracer app, and enable Bluetooth Tracing on your phone.
  • Check the Covid 19 website for the locations of interest for the current outbreak.  Get tested if you were at those locations over the dates and times listed, or if you are experiencing Covid-like symptoms.  Please don't go to a testing station otherwise.

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.
