The Auckland Girls’ Choir is looking for girls aged 10 to 17 to be part of the Choir. We warmly welcome girls from Newton Central School to audition.
With a proud tradition spanning more than 20 years, the choir was established to provide accessible, enriching choral experiences for young girls from the greater Auckland region. To date the choir has attracted girls from over 50 different schools, reflecting the rich ethnic and socio-economic diversity of the greater Auckland region.
No prior singing experience is needed, but a passion for music and a desire to learn. In the words of the choir founder,
“The Auckland Girls’ Choir isn’t just about teaching girls how to sing; it’s also about empowering them to be strong leaders” Leonie Lawson, Founder
Membership in the Auckland Girls’ Choir is via audition where vocal fluency, musicianship, and overall potential will be assessed.
Auditions for the 2021 intake will take place on:
* Saturday, 14th November, 9am to 4pm and
* Sunday , 06th December, 9am to 4pm (a new date added due to popular demand)
If accepted into the Choir, girls are expected to attend weekly choir rehearsals that span the regular school year. Attendance at a separate weekend workshop in each of the four school terms is also required, as well as full commitment to all performance engagements.
