Association of Choral Directors
Auckland / Member choirs / Auckland Welsh Choir

Auckland Welsh Choir

We invite singers of all voice types who enjoy singing in four part harmony and can hold a part and either read music or have an excellent ear. Singers commit to performing up to six charitable fundraising concerts each year and are undaunted by learning to pronounce and sing a range of languages. Members enjoy the company of a friendly and welcoming group of people who strive for high choral standards with a varied, accessible, attractive repertoire from NZ and around the world, with emphasis on Welsh and Celtic music. After three rehearsals as a guest, intending members undertake an informal audition with the Musical Director. Ongoing voice coaching is provided within choir or sectionals, together with solo opportunities and coaching in the pronunciation of other languages, including Welsh. There are opportunities for private voice lessons if desired.
