Past, Present & Future

The South Auckland Choral (SAC) is a talented choir from the greater Auckland area. Since first coming together in 1975, this group of singers has developed a cohesive and creative performance style. The SAC is a four-part choir that meets weekly to rehearse on Tuesday evenings from 7.15 pm for a 7.30 pm start in Crossroads Methodist Church, Broadway, Papakura.
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 under the leadership of our inspirational Musical Director, David Gordon.
The range of music presented includes the well-known oratorios, both serious and light classical work, through to edgy contemporary and light 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 always welcome. The choir provides encouraging support to 'first-timers' with warm-up and voice training sessions led by David and a strong focus on 'note learning' for those who don't read music.​​
