Auckland Choral Patrons Statement, March 2020, CoVid19

Auckland Choral regrets to advise that the upcoming May 9th concert – “Haydn, The Seasons” will not go ahead as planned owing to the critical COVID-19 situation and the Government’s new limits on mass public gatherings.

We are immensely proud of the wonderful music we have been preparing for our audience and are extremely sad not to have the opportunity to deliver it to our music-loving community, but the health and well-being of all must be our paramount concern at this difficult time.

All purchased tickets will be fully refunded via Ticketmaster and we will be in touch with all stakeholders over the coming days to discuss our change of plans.

We continue to prepare for our concert – “Light” scheduled for August 29th and we look forward to seeing you again in the future.

If you have further questions or require up-dated information, please contact our General Manager, Carey McDonald at This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it., who will either respond or pass on your query to the appropriate person.

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

  • Jim Allardyce

    Picture of Jim AllardyceJim Allardyce here from Whangarei. Commuting to Auckland for work, down on a Tuesday and back on a Friday, has opened up a new side to my social calendar. Rehearsals at the choir have become my weekly highlight forming a natural part of my week. Joining only this year, I remember going for my first visit to "check it all out" - I sat at the back amazed at the choir sight-reading Mendelssohn in German (as it was their first reading and performance of the piece). Very soon I was in the thick of it - rolling my r's in Mendelssohn's tongue with the other singers in my bass one section. My inaugural concert in the Auckland Town Hall was unforgettable as the choir was stupendous.

    My day job is highly motivating, as a health and safety professional.  Working throughout a range of industries spanning 25 years I continue to provide coaching to ensure people take ownership for managing risk. My daily priority is sustaining zero harm and I do this by ensuring safe work methods and promoting a great safety culture.
