Auckland Choral’s official alumni group was set up early in 2018.
Launched with a social occasion hosted by John Stevenson and organised by John and Traude Leibbrand, many former Auckland Choral choristers were delighted to become a part of this group.

The year of 2018 ended with a highlight: it saw alumni members join Auckland Choral on the Town Hall stage for the 100 Hallelujah Memorial Messiah performances.

Strong linkages to the Auckland Choral Management Committee and the Foundation have been formed and an Alumni Committee has been set up to plan events at which alumni can re-connect, sing together, share memories about their years performing in the choir and also on occasion follow invitations to sing with the existing choir in concert whilst also supporting the choir in a variety of ways.

If you have sung with Auckland Choral and left the choir, you are warmly invited to join us by emailing:

Alumni (first two rows) join the choir for Handel’s Messiah on 16.12.2018 at the 100 Hallelujah Jubilee concert

Alumni gather at the Town Hall bar prior to attending the SING concert on 26.02.23

Report from our Midwinter Christmas

A record number of Alumni attended this year’s Midwinter Christmas event at John Stevenson’s home on 23 July 23. Apart from meeting up with past choir friends and enjoying a glass of mulled wine and afternoon tea everyone loved taking part in the quiz challenge and in the choral singing, accompanied by alumnus Brian Millar and conducted by Auckland Choral’s president David Hamilton.
