Due to the recent COVID-19 update, physical rehearsals will not be taking place until further notice. Stay safe, everyone!
The Greater Auckland Chorus is a barbershop/a cappella singing group. We are a close-knit community of likeminded individuals of all ages, ethnicities, and backgrounds who get together to share our love and passion for singing and performing. We teach and perform women's four-part harmony singing to individuals of all ages, voice ranges, and music abilities (e.g. the ability to read sheet music is not necessary).
We work together to improve our vocal skills in the area of women's barbershop.
Each year, we compete at the national competition for the opportunity to compete on the international stage. Our songs include everything from old classics, to Freddie Mercury, to Christmas carols!
As a competitive chorus we have won the New Zealand national title for barbershop singing six times since we were formed in 1983. We have travelled overseas to places such as Las Vegas, Hawaii, Seattle, Calgary, and Phoenix to represent New Zealand at the international competition.
Our chorus is a member of Sweet Adelines International - one of the world's largest singing organisations, boasting members from many continents. Sweet Adelines strives to educate singers musically across the globe and offer unforgettable life experiences, support and sisterhood.
Join us at our weekly rehearsal on any Tuesday night from 7:15pm to see what we do. We rehearse at the the University of Auckland, Epsom campus, Block B, Gate 3, 74 Epsom Avenue, Auckland. (However, due to our usual venue being unavailable due to COVID-19, we are currently rehearsing at a temporary venue - Epsom Normal Primary School, 41 The Drive, Epsom.) Our members live all over the greater Auckland region, from Orewa all the way to Pokeno, so if you are interested in coming along and would like to carpool with one of us, feel free to contact us to make arrangements.
