Sing With Us
Do you love to sing? Is the performer in you ready to emerge?
Do you want a musical escape where you can make friends with other diverse, dynamic women?
Christchurch City Chorus is New Zealand's premier chorus of dynamic, vital and exciting female performers. Our members enjoy our Wednesday evening rehearsals because they are all about musical fun and achievement.
We have been featured in the newspaper here.
Our motto ‘enriching voices, enriching lives’
You’ll find we’ll change your life, so come and join us at our rehearsals.
We rehearse every Wednesday evening from 7pm to 10pm at McCombs Performing Arts Centre, Cashmere High School, 61 Barrington Street.
To join our chorus you do not need to read music or have a trained singing voice. You only need to be able to sing in tune. Ongoing training is provided in vocal, breathing and visual performance skills.
If you are interested in joining the Chorus, you will be placed in one of four voice parts – tenor, lead, baritone or bass. The Chorus will provide you with music and learning tracks to take home. You will have six weeks to learn two songs for your final audition, which you will sing along with an experienced quartet. They are there to support you.
During the six week audition process you will have opportunities to practise the audition songs singing with the whole chorus or smaller groups. Along the way you will have plenty of help from other members of your section. The audition identifies your potential – wrong notes will not rule you out.
