Meet The Greater Auckland Chorus
Dear friends of the Greater Auckland Chorus,
In light of the advised social distancing to slow down the spread of Covid-19, we are taking a break from physical rehearsals until further notice. In lieu of these rehearsals, our beloved director, Jocosa Bruce, and our music team will be working on regular virtual and/or educational activities with the chorus.
We value the wellbeing of all our fellow singers, their families, and our wider communities, and we appreciate everyone's support. Our regular rehearsals will start up again when the Covid-19 alert level has reduced to a satisfactory and safe level again.
Kia Kaha, Aotearoa!
Based in Auckland, New Zealand, the Greater Auckland Chorus is an award-winning, dynamic female performing group who specialise in 4 part harmony A Cappella singing.
Looking for pulse-pounding tempos and soulful ballads? You've come to the right place! Our repertoire spans all musical genres, from barbershop standards to jazz and Broadway musical standards through to Pop and Rock music from the likes of Queen, Michael Buble and The Eurythmics.
Whether you're looking for a place to sing with others, or searching for a dynamic chorus or quartet to perform at your next show or corporate event, GAC is the group for you.
We are made up of people from all over Auckland, from a diverse range of backgrounds, ages and occupations who come together to share a love of singing and performing. While singing at night, by day we have doctors, lawyers, real estate agents, a clinical psychologist, teachers, parents and more who all use their involvement with Greater Auckland Chorus as a crucial creative outlet. As members of GAC, we have all gone through an audition process to earn our place as a full member. We meet each Tuesday night to work on our common goal of improving as an individual in not only singing harmonies but also improving confidence in ourselves as performers. We deliver an exciting and energetic performance.
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, 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 organizations, boasting members from many continents. Sweet Adelines strives to educate singers musically across the globe and offer unforgettable life experiences, support and sisterhood.
