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.
