Sing and train alongside all three National Choirs!

For the first time choristers will have the chance to join a national academy of choral singing. Organised by Choirs Aotearoa New Zealand, all three national choirs (NZ Secondary Students’ Choir, NZ Youth Choir, Voices NZ) will be in residence and keen singers from around the country can book their place to experience these choirs in action, sit-in and sing with the choirs, and have access to their professional artistic staff for workshops in musicianship, vocal and conducting techniques. 

Register for one of these three groups:
- Group S: age 13-17, mirroring NZSSC
- Group Y: age 18-25, mirroring NZYC
- Group V: Adults (age 25+) with a good choral skill level, and a keen desire to advance their vocal and language skills.

With Love and Hope - Gyda Chariad a Gobaith

AWC Performs for A Girl Called Hope, featuring tenor Manase Latu.

Early each March the Auckland Welsh Choir celebrates St David, the patron saint of Wales. On March 3, 2019 we will showcase music of love and hope, through popular choral music and our traditional, wide-ranging and well-loved repertoire. For this concert the choir is delighted to welcome as its soloist young tenor, Manase Latu. Manase is a recent Lexus finalist and winner of the prestigious New Zealand Aria in 2018.

Our concert is fundraising for A Girl Called Hope, and we invite you to join us. Your presence will help all who work with A Girl Called Hope to continue providing a future full of hope and potential to every young woman.

Hope is like the sun, which, as we journey toward it, cast the shadow of our burden behind us.” Samuel Smiles, 1812 - 1904
