Who we are: Get to know some of our choir members

  • Albert Wilson

    Picture of Albert WilsonHi! I’m Albert Wilson, and joined Auckland Choral in 2018, as a Tenor. 

    Originally from South Africa, I have sung in choirs since I can remember, therefore it was only natural to join a choir again and continue this passion, when I relocated to New Zealand.

    Being part of Auckland Choral is truly special as it gives members the opportunity to belong to a truly special and inspiring community of choral music lovers, no matter your background!

    With its rich history, committed leadership and world-class conductor, I am very honoured to be part of the choir.

     
  • Becky O'Gram

    Picture of Becky O'GramMy earliest memories of singing were car songs, where my sisters and I were squashed in the back of the car while my mother lead the chorus from the front. I started singing in small groups and choirs at age 12 for church events and friends' weddings. I've been a member of some form of choir ever since and now count myself very lucky to be a member of Auckland Choral. I joined in January 2017, with my first concert being the huge St John Passion by Bach. We performed it at the Holy Trinity Cathedral, in German! Singing out that first loud "Herr" gave me goose bumps and was an unforgettable experience. In December that year I got to perform in the Messiah for the first time and hope to do the same every Christmas for a long time to come.

     
  • Jacob Siohane-Royle

    Picture of Jacob Siohane-RoyleI joined late last year in the Soprano 1 section, and am currently Auckland Choral’s youngest member, at 14 years old.  Born and raised in Auckland, I have worked with professional music companies such as New Zealand Opera, Auckland Philharmonia Orchestra, Opera Factory, and others.  Auckland Choral rehearsals are generally the highlight of my week.  In 2015 I gained first place in Opera Factory’s Idol competition. This year in the Aria international vocal competition, I came 1st in two of the four categories available.  Outside of music, I study in year 10 at Kristin School in Albany, and I play flute and piano.
