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

  • Richard J. Milne

    Picture of Richard J. MilneRichard has been a singing member of Auckland Choral for over 14 years, as a member of the Bass section, and is currently Deputy Chairperson and a member of the Finance and Management Subcommittee. He strongly supports the vision of the current Music Director, to develop Auckland Choral as a major symphonic choir, working with international and local artists and professional orchestras.   

    As a healthcare scientist, Richard believes that music, laughter and friendship are the best medicines; and he finds that Auckland Choral provides all of these. Richard has an adult son and daughter and two grandchildren who love music.

     
  • Albert Wilson

    Picture of Albert WilsonHi! I’m Albert Wilson, and only 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.
    Choral music is so much more than singing… It creates a sense of belonging and community - being part of something special and inspiring. Therefore, being part of Auckland Choral is truly special!
    With its rich history, committed leadership and world-class conductor, I feel extremely honoured to sing in the choir, especially at the centenary celebration of Handel’s Messiah. Performing this piece is a dream come true, and I feel very lucky to be part of it.

     
  • Olive Leddy

    Picture of Olive LeddyI have sung ever since I can remember, joining choirs through school and university, and in the course of teaching, took up conducting choirs. Around this time I re-discovered the personal joy of singing in a choir and have sung with Auckland Choral for over ten years now. As Chair of the Auckland Committee of the New Zealand Choral Federation, I am doing all I can to strengthen the choral community in our city, supporting  many choirs in primary, intermediate and secondary schools as well as our adult choirs. I have many other areas of interest, enjoy travelling with my husband and connecting with our three children. Music is an integral part of my life that I believe benefits in a multitude of ways those who participate in it. Everyone needs to find places of personal well-being and coming to Auckland Choral’s practices each week, is one of mine.
