NZCF is the umbrella and lead organisation for some 20,000 choral singers and conductors. NZCF aims to increase its own membership and participation in NZCF activities, and to assist its member choirs to grow their own audience numbers. NZCF works closely with Choirs Aotearoa and the New Zealand Secondary Students Choir (both NZCF members of the Federation), providing marketing support.
The NZCF is a member of the International Federation of Choral Music (IFCM) based in Western Europe, which serves a global community, as well as the American Choral Directors’ Association (ACDA). NZCF has reciprocal membership of the Australian National Choral Association (ANCA).
Organisations that wish to join NZCF as members are invited to contact the chief executive, Grant Hutchinson .
