Who we are: Know some of our choir members

  • Richard Sorrenson

    Picture of Richard SorrensonRichard has been singing in choirs and choruses since he was in the Auckland Boys Choir, conducted by Neil Shroff.  Subsequent choirs have included NZ Youth Choir with Peter Godfrey and Viva Voce and NZ Opera Chorus with John Rosser. To sing the great works under the direction of Uwe Grodt has been a real privilege and to join with the orchestra in all its majesty at rehearsal and in performance is always a thrill.

     
  • Ann Whitehouse

    Picture of Ann WhitehouseI learnt to sing on my mother's knee and have been singing ever since! In school in Wales I sang in small and large choirs in the eisteddfod. As soon as I left school I joined a choral society and have always been a member of one choir or another. I joined Auckland Choral in 2006 and have been on the management committee for the last 2 years. Choral singing has given me opportunities to make and keep wonderful friends, to travel, to see magnificent buildings, to hear all the major works and many new compositions, and to be part of a fabulous music making machine, always striving to improve. I have sung Handel's Messiah in 4 continents, in 2016 clocked up my 70th Messiah, and I still love it. I am also a semi retired speech language therapist and enjoy spending time with my 5 grandchildren.
