South Auckland Choral Society
The SOUTH AUCKLAND CHORAL SOCIETY INC. is a four part choir that meets weekly to rehearse on Tuesday evenings from 7.30 pm to 9.30 pm in Crossroads Methodist Church, Broadway, Papakura, New Zealand. Three concerts are usually performed each year, with guest soloists and conductors.
Singers come from a wide area - from Auckland through to Te Kauwhata in the south and coast-to-coast from Waiuku across to Clevedon. Young and old enjoy singing together in the various types of music presented. The choices range from serious classical to light-hearted pop.
Numbers vary from 20-50 singers, depending on the work being rehearsed and (it has to be confessed) the winter weather! During the past 30 years over 110 programmes have been presented in centres as far apart as Whangarei and Napier.
New members are welcome; the conductor, Simon Filice, auditions new members and encourages them to develop their musical skills.
