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

  • Katherine Hong

    Picture of Katherine HongHi, I am Katherine Hong - Alto 1, joined Auckland Choral in the early 2016.  I am crazy about 18th and 19th century classical music and dreamt one day I could sing "Messiah" in a symphonic choir.  And now not only I sing "Messiah" but also have lots of  opportunities to sing other beautiful and heavenly music which I never dreamt that dream.  No single rehearsal I want to miss.

    I have one son and one furry kid.  I spend most of my time with my furry kid and enjoy watching ballet and will never get bored.

  • John Mitchell

    Picture of John MitchellI have always enjoyed singing, one of my ealiest memories is rehearsing a small item “me and my teddy bear” as a preschooler.  Music is fundemental to who I am and have been fortunate to recieve encouragment and opportunities to improve my ability and to perform.  I have performed with: Auckland Boys Choir, NZ Opera (Turandot), Auckland University Singers, Rennaisance singers (Palmerston North) and Auckland Choral since 2012.  I attained Grade 8 (highest level) singing with the Royal School of Music under the tutalage of Evelyn Hatfield.  I’ve also been onstage in several gang shows with Scouts NZ and school shows at Avondale College.

  • Traude Leibbrand

    Picture of Traude LeibbrandTraude has been a choral singer since 1998 and she is the immediate past Chair of Auckland Choral. In this role she has been instrumental in updating the way the organisation operates and she has learnt valuable lessons about running a voluntary, community based organisation - something she feels very passionate about.  As a health professional running her own business, she is aware of the many positive effects that choral singing has on one's well-being - physically, mentally and socially. 

    In 2015 she was invited to become a trustee of the Auckland Choral Foundation, a role in which she can continue to actively contribute to develop and nurture choral singing in New Zealand, and Auckland Choral in particular.
