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 Latin, 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:

Rivers of Passion and Peace

St Barnabas Church, Mt Eden.

Saturday 29th June, 3pm.  

The title of this concert says it all. From our wide repertoire, we have selected songs about rivers and about peace. We open with a stirring Latin piece celebrating faith and music, by famous Welsh composer, Sir Karl Jenkins, and will conclude with an equally stirring Welsh anthem called Y Tangnefeddwyr. This is translated as The Peacemakers and is fitting this June, as precisely 100 years ago some of our WW1 soldiers were still awaiting repatriation to NZ. We have invited instrumentalists to join us and they provide a special feature as well as playing a delightful supporting obligato accompaniment for some favourite songs.

Along with a roaring fire in the lounge we want to provide a pleasurable afternoon of music for this, our 8th winter concert in the lovely historic church of St Barnabas. We will also offer afternoon tea in the lounge post-concert for a gold coin donation.
