Auckland Welsh Choir
Côr Cymreig. 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.
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 Latin, German, French, Italian, Māori, 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. We have a scholarship available for any interested younger members.
There is so much to enjoy about Spring, so Auckland Welsh Choir would like you to celebrate this wonderful season by sharing another concert of youth, variety and charm, as we showcase all of these things. Peka Totara Choir from One Tree Hill College will join us and sing the lovely programme of songs they prepared for The Big Sing Competition and once again our choir will be joined by a range of outstanding instrumental performers. Contemporary music by popular choral composers sits alongside our traditional, wide-ranging and well-loved repertoire, as we invite you to join us for this concert, fundraising for Pillars NZ. This group has been working since 1988 to provide wide-ranging support for the families of prisoners. For this concert we take a special interest in their provision of one-on-one mentoring for children in these families.
