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.

Who we are: Get to know some of our choir members

  • Kimberley Harris

    Picture of Kimberley HarrisKimberley joined the choir as a Soprano in January 2015 for Handel's Israel in Egypt. It was a daunting, split choir piece with a short rehearsal period but this didn't scare her away! Kimberley has been singing since before she could talk, her first words were sung, being Old MacDonald's E-I-E-I-O. Kimberley joined the Auckland Girls Choir as a foundation member in 1998 under Leonie Lawson and found she enjoyed Choral Music but left in 2000 as a 13 year old and found enjoyment throughout her high-school years in musical stage performances and often performed singing solos at school assemblies and talent contests. 

    After high-school Kimberley got her first job as a Receptionist in a Print Brokers and has since grown in the industry and is now very happy in her latest role as a Customer Support specialising in Labels. Kimberley has a wonderful daughter Jayda and a very cool and cheeky son, Harris (don't worry! he has his Fathers surname!) who bring her much joy. She grew up in and still resides in the Howick/Pakuranga area. Kimberley also enjoys movies, crystals, philosophical conversations and Karaoke (of course!)

     
  • Albert Wilson

    Picture of Albert WilsonHi! I’m Albert Wilson, and joined Auckland Choral in 2018, as a Tenor. 

    Originally from South Africa, I have sung in choirs since I can remember, therefore it was only natural to join a choir again and continue this passion, when I relocated to New Zealand.

    Being part of Auckland Choral is truly special as it gives members the opportunity to belong to a truly special and inspiring community of choral music lovers, no matter your background!

    With its rich history, committed leadership and world-class conductor, I am very honoured to be part of the choir.
