After a year of preparations, Greater Auckland Chorus were rewarded with a well-deserved first place in the medium sized chorus AA category, and a second place in the overall contest. Forty-six members journeyed to Wellington, where we performed our sultry uptune 'Flirty Eyes', and our heartwarming ballad, 'If ever I would leave you'. While it was hard work, and took heaps of dedication and focus to achieve this result, members had a blast and all agree, this was one of the most fun regionals GAC has had so far. Thank you to our gorgeous director, Jocosa Bruce, for her inspiration and leadership. We're a happy and motivated group, and we're all set for the next challenge!
On Sunday 26th February, we visited Waiake Beach for a summer singout as part of the East Coast Bays "Music in the Bays" series.
We entertained picnickers and assorted beachgoers with some of our classic tunes as well as our contest numbers.
We even sang Happy Birthday to a lovely lady celebrating with her friends and family!
The cicadas were determined to outsing us, but in the end it was a beautiful compromise of nature and music on a beautiful late summer day.
