With the second lockdown out of the way and being back in level 1 COVID-19 restrictions, we returned to our comfy venue tonight to sing together on the risers again. It was great to brush up on our voices and techniques and to go over a new song we are learning. We were pleased to have several new faces join us today as well, whom we welcomed with open arms.
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...more
This week we returned to our usual venue at the University of Auckland, Epsom campus on 74 Epsom Avenue. Although it was nice to have a temporary venue where we could still get together and sing, there's nothing like the feeling of returning to our home base.
After months of virtual rehearsals due to COVID-19 restrictions, it is a great pleasure that we are now able to get together and sing in person again. We are temporarily located at 41 The Drive, Epsom as our usual location is closed until the end of July. We look forward to seeing each other and also new faces at our regular Tuesday rehearsals from the 9th of June onwards. Come on along!
If you have any questions or queries, we are able to be contacted via our email [email protected]

Ilan did an amazing photo shoot of us ...more
We had two superb evenings with David McEachern this week. Thank you, David, for helping us to experience and to be all of the things!
GAC were on our annual retreat over the weekend, this year in Hunua. Needless to say, there was plenty of singing... but we also enjoyed some relaxing meditation, a fantastic barbecue dinner, lots of laughs and, ofcourse, more singing.

GAC is delighted to announce we will be representing New Zealand as... more
