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.

With Love and Hope - Gyda Chariad a Gobaith,  AWC Performs for A Girl Called Hope 

Early each March the Auckland Welsh Choir celebrates St David, the patron saint of Wales. This year we will showcase music of love and hope, through popular choral music and our traditional, wide-ranging and well-loved repertoire. For this concert the choir is delighted to welcome as its special guests an invited opera quartet. All are NZ emerging artists and graduates in singing performance. Be prepared for a treat as they sing well-known quartets from operas Fidelio and Martha! 

Our Concert is fundraising for A Girl Called Hope, a non–profit organisation working with young women who face life–controlling issues and behavior. We invite you to join us for this concert, and help A Girl Called Hope continue to provide a future full of hope and potential to every young woman.
