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

  • Becky O'Gram

    Picture of Becky O'GramMy earliest memories of singing were car songs, where my sisters and I were squashed in the back of the car while my mother lead the chorus from the front. I started singing in small groups and choirs at age 12 for church events and friends' weddings. I've been a member of some form of choir ever since and now count myself very lucky to be a member of Auckland Choral. I joined in January 2017, with my first concert being the huge St John Passion by Bach. We performed it at the Holy Trinity Cathedral, in German! Singing out that first loud "Herr" gave me goose bumps and was an unforgettable experience. In December that year I got to perform in the Messiah for the first time and hope to do the same every Christmas for a long time to come.

     
  • John Mitchell

    Picture of John MitchellI have always enjoyed singing, one of my ealiest memories is rehearsing a small item “me and my teddy bear” as a preschooler.  Music is fundemental to who I am and have been fortunate to recieve encouragment and opportunities to improve my ability and to perform.  I have performed with: Auckland Boys Choir, NZ Opera (Turandot), Auckland University Singers, Rennaisance singers (Palmerston North) and Auckland Choral since 2012.  I attained Grade 8 (highest level) singing with the Royal School of Music under the tutalage of Evelyn Hatfield.  I’ve also been onstage in several gang shows with Scouts NZ and school shows at Avondale College.

     
  • Pedro Silva

    Picture of Pedro Silva

    I discovered and have fallen in love with choral music while I was in high school in Lisbon. Later I joined Lisboa Cantat, a Lisbon-based symphonic choir for a few years. After coming to New Zealand, in early 2013 I joined Auckland Choral, and I have since been a member of the Bass section. 

    Alongside with choral music, I love motorbike riding, travelling and tramping the beautiful landscapes of New Zealand. Professionally, I work for the Faculty of Engineering, University of Auckland as Director of Faculty Operations.
