Auckland Choral Patrons Statement, March 2020, CoVid19

Auckland Choral regrets to advise that the upcoming May 9th concert – “Haydn, The Seasons” will not go ahead as planned owing to the critical COVID-19 situation and the Government’s new limits on mass public gatherings.

We are immensely proud of the wonderful music we have been preparing for our audience and are extremely sad not to have the opportunity to deliver it to our music-loving community, but the health and well-being of all must be our paramount concern at this difficult time.

All purchased tickets will be fully refunded via Ticketmaster and we will be in touch with all stakeholders over the coming days to discuss our change of plans.

We continue to prepare for our concert – “Light” scheduled for August 29th and we look forward to seeing you again in the future.

Who we are: Get to know some of our choir members

  • Anna Bassett

    Picture of Anna Bassett

    Hi, I’m Anna, and I am originally from the UK but have called New Zealand home for over 20 years. I sang in choirs in the UK in a past life but had a long sabbatical owing to a transient career in the yachting industry, sailing far and wide. I joined Auckland Choral in 2011 when work brought me closer to home, and became a member of the Management and Marketing committees. I sing sop 1, and I am thrilled to be singing again, particularly as part of such an inspiring, fun and talented choir.

    More recently I got a degree in Sport Management at Unitec, and I freelance between sport events, the marine industry and a Youth Leadership programme at Unitec. For kicks, I love to tramp, ski, swim, climb, sail, paddle – and generally go for really long walks in the beautiful New Zealand “outback”.

     

     

     
  • Becky O'Gram

    Picture of Becky O'GramMy earliest memories of singing were car songs, where my sisters and I were squashed in the back of the car while my mother lead the chorus from the front. I started singing in small groups and choirs at age 12 for church events and friends' weddings. I've been a member of some form of choir ever since and now count myself very lucky to be a member of Auckland Choral. I joined in January 2017, with my first concert being the huge St John Passion by Bach. We performed it at the Holy Trinity Cathedral, in German! Singing out that first loud "Herr" gave me goose bumps and was an unforgettable experience. In December that year I got to perform in the Messiah for the first time and hope to do the same every Christmas for a long time to come.
