Choir

Holy Trinity Church has one of the most active Anglican parish choirs in Auckland.

The full choir sings at special services at Christmas and Easter and at other times of the year.

CHOIR EVENTS & REHEARSAL INFORMATION FOR 2022

There will be FOUR large events and TWO smaller events for the year (please see the schedules below). The four big events are: GOOD FRIDAY, EVENING EUCHARIST, A CELEBRATION OF SPRING and “9 LESSONS AND CAROLS”. These each require several rehearsals because the choir is featured prominently (typically performing 5 or 6 pieces). The two smaller events are: ALL SAINTS and CHRISTMAS EVE MIDNIGHT SERVICE. In these two events the choir leads the congregation with singing hymns and carols.
It would be helpful if you could diarise ALL the dates that are of interest to you, so that you are available for rehearsals and events when they occur. It is very difficult for everyone when there are singers missing from rehearsals. It is particularly important when rehearsing the four big events, that everyone attends the two final rehearsals.
I hope that most of you will be able to participate in the 6 events in 2022. The choir is an integral part of Holy Trinity Church and every single singer is a valued participant.
It’s also always great to welcome new singers. If you know of anyone who is an experienced choral singer i.e. can sing in tune, and can also hold their tune when harmonising, please ask then to contact me. Thank you.


PLEASE NOTE THAT THE CHURCH MANDATE STATES THAT ANYONE WHO SINGS IN THE CHOIR NEEDS TO BE DOUBLE VACCINATED.
