Choir camp early each year sets the groundwork for our Premier auditioned choir, Kentoris, to expand their repertoire. Vocal coaching and the exploration of new works prepare them for their first performance early in the year at the College Open Day.
Alongside our auditioned choir, there are other choirs for students with a love of singing. Menasing, our powerful, award winning Boys' choir and Musettes, our stunning Girls' choir bring students of all ages together for both performance and competition. Our Massed Choir brings together students of all age groups who love to sing.
The itinerant music programme at the College provides tuition for students who wish to hone their choral skills and during the year there are many opportunities for our vocalists to perform either solo, as part of a small group or full choir at a number of performance evenings.
Our choirs enter in the Auckland Regional section of the New Zealand Choral Federation's BIG SING competition held in the Auckland Town Hall each year where our performances are regularly commended at a high level.
Our top vocalists make a commanding presence in their leading solo roles in our annual musical.
There is a further choral event on the annual calendar that is enjoyed by an even larger number of vocalists. Our annual, sell-out House Music Evening brings six large House Choirs along with a choir from Bruce House, our boarding facility, to the stage, all vying for the coveted House Music Cup. This evening is a huge amount of fun that gives a large number of students the chance to discover the love of singing and the thrill of performing in a professional venue.
