Jocosa Bruce

Master Director

Jocosa became a Sweet Adeline at just 12 years of age bringing a  strong music background having learnt piano, playing ‘cello' for both the Auckland and New Zealand Secondary schools orchestras, singing in the Opus Choir at Epsom Girls, and also performing in many musicals.

Jocosa joined the Music team in 2001 as one of the Lead section leaders, and became an Assistant Director in 2003, also taking up the position of Director of SouthCity Soundz, where her frontline experience is an added bonus for the Chorus.

In 2008 Jocosa was promoted to Associate Director, as her assistance and ability to stand in for Melody was becoming more apparent and in 2013, she became our own in-house coach, working much of the time out in front, guiding and advising both the chorus and the Director. In Hawaii she directed for the first time on the international stage, and with that experience and her continued in house coaching role, Jocosa has now become co-director.
