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

  • Lisa Er

    Picture of Lisa ErLisa has been in the choir since 1974 with the exception of a couple of years when she was busy with small children.
    Born in the UK Lisa emigrated with her parents to New Zealand at the age of 16. Already politically active Lisa has continued to have a passionate interest in peace, politics, ethics and philosophy, as well as a deep love of music.
    A primary school teacher for 14 years, Lisa then created the business Lisa's Hummus, which she sold a few years ago. Now Lisa is immersed in creating political solutions via The Awareness Party, and  will continue singing in the choir as long as she is able!

     
  • Albert Wilson

    Picture of Albert WilsonHi! I’m Albert Wilson, and only joined Auckland Choral in 2018, as a Tenor.
    Originally from South Africa, I have sung in choirs since I can remember, therefore it was only natural to join a choir again and continue this passion, when I relocated to New Zealand.
    Choral music is so much more than singing… It creates a sense of belonging and community - being part of something special and inspiring. Therefore, being part of Auckland Choral is truly special!
    With its rich history, committed leadership and world-class conductor, I feel extremely honoured to sing in the choir, especially at the centenary celebration of Handel’s Messiah. Performing this piece is a dream come true, and I feel very lucky to be part of it.
