Auckland Choral, Auckland’s only symphonic choir, is as vibrant and dynamic as ever! Since 1855, Auckland Choral has been performing timeless classic choral works as well as exciting contemporary compositions, including New Zealand premieres, alongside some of our finest soloists and orchestras.

Its members, wide-ranging in age, work intensely at rehearsals and are passionately committed to the music they sing. Bringing a unique blend of artistic excellence, professional polish and community spirit to their performances, they are proud to be part of a choir that continues to play such a significant role in Auckland’s arts scene.

  • Aria Zhang

    Picture of Aria ZhangSinging in choirs since I was at Fudan University in Shanghai, I have been regarding singing as one of the most important part of my life. Before I moved to Auckland, I searched online and found Auckland Choral. I told myself: that is the choir I want to join in!
    Then here I am. Being an alto at Auckland Choral, I enjoy every rehearsal we have every Wednesday. I love our conductors and our music committee for their professional selection and interpretation of music works. I love our marketing committee for their enthusiasm and persistence in promoting our performance. Being a helper at the marketing committee, I engaged in campaigns at University campus and the Chinese Community. That is definitely what I want to do as a PhD student at The University of Auckland and as a new Chinese immigrant. 
    Music is a language to communicate with other people no matter which country we come from. Being a member of Auckland Choral, I have an even stronger feeling of integrating into this vibrant and diversified city—Auckland!
     
  • Jane Gee

    Picture of Jane GeeI joined Auckland Choral in 2008. I enjoy the challenges of the big works which are inspired by Uwe's leadership. Singing with Auckland Choral is as important to me as breathing! And second only to my husband and family. My grandmother said that you should 'do The Messiah' at least once before you die! I have have had the privilege of singing it many times. I have made many friends and hope to sing with Choral for many years to come.
