The Greater Auckland Chorus is a barbershop/a cappella singing group. We are a friendly community of likeminded individuals of all ages, ethnicities, and backgrounds who get together to share our love and passion for singing and performing.
We sing mostly in four-part harmony, but also have songs with 5 or more parts, including soloists. 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 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. 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.
