About the choir

Capital Choir is a mixed-voice choir based in Wellington, New Zealand. Our repertoire covers a wide range including sacred and secular classical works, New Zealand compositions, spiritual and folk music, musical theatre and popular songs.

Our choir is a friendly one: we endeavour to get to know and encourage each other and while some are very experienced singers and musicians, others have done little singing.  In over 20 years it has grown from 15 to 75 and it is a stimulating place to be on Tuesday nights.  There are no auditions for joining the Capital Choir.  It is helpful though to have:

  • A love of singing and the ability to hold a tune
  • A keen interest in learning more and developing skills in choral singing
  • A commitment to our weekly rehearsals (occasionally extra Saturday ones) and our performances – usually two or three major ones a year, and some other smaller ones.
