Auckland Welsh Choir

A Kiwi Choir with a Celtic connection

Join Us If You Love To Sing

We are a community choir who provide a welcoming environment to develop, challenge and enjoy ourselves as singers.  Under our Music Director's guidance we strive for musical and vocal excellence while making friends and helping the community.  We also have a scholarship available for any interested younger members. 

Our music draws on a rich range of folk songs with a Celtic flavour, as well as our cornerstone Welsh language repertoire.  We usually sing in four part harmony, enjoying also the traditional choral repertoire of sacred and secular songs.  At times we perform more challenging larger scale concert works using guest instrumentalists.  Besides English and Welsh, we have also sung in German, French, Italian, Maori, Mandarin, Russian and even Estonian. 

Come along to a concert or enquire about attending a rehearsal if you'd like to join our choral family.

 

Upcoming Events:

 

 Alway Something Sings - Sunday September 24th at 2pm

St Lukes Church, 130 Remuera Road, Remuera

The proven restorative and health-giving power of singing is a subject much talked and written about by researchers. Benefits are well-acknowledged by singers in Auckland Welsh Choir and, very appropriately, our upcoming concert at St Luke’s Church will be entitled “Alway Something Sings”.

Contemporary American composer Dan Forrest has written this appealingly apt title piece, which we will perform with with two choirs and five string players. Peka Totara Choir of One Tree Hill College will join Auckland Welsh Choir in the programme, along with successful young music performance graduate and soloist, soprano Bernice Austin, whose parents are both long-time members of Auckland Welsh Choir. With a programme including sacred music, classic part-songs of the English countryside, lieder and even a little vocal jazz, we will present a performance which is sure to provide a pleasant afternoon interlude. At the same time you will be helping us to support the Auckland Restorative Justice Trust, a group which is committed to training more counsellors for its valuable work.  Tickets $25 at the door on click iTicket link below.
