2015 Friends of the Choir

Welcome to the launch of City Choir's concert programme for 2015 and our invitation to you to become a Friend of the Choir.

City Choir presents

On our Concerts page you will find details of the 2015 concert season with the four concerts we are presenting this year. One of these, in September, will be a joint presentation with the Dunedin Youth Orchestra. We look forward to sharing the stage with these young musicians once again.

As a Friend you will receive a total of four free tickets throughout the season. Not all ticket prices have been fixed yet at this stage, but it could mean a saving of around $160 to you for this concert season.

We will let you know closer to the time when tickets are available and do keep in mind that school children may attend our concerts free of charge, and tertiary students are eligible for heavily discounted tickets when they show a student ID.

Other City Choir gigs

In addition to the concerts presented by City Choir, we have some other engagements:
  • Friday 13 March, Bbeals, with Footnote New Zealand Dance at the Regent Theatre. City Choir supports this dance production in a cameo appearance, singing from the audience.
  • Saturday 18 April, Vaughan Williams' A Sea Symphony, with Auckland Choral Society and Southern Sinfonia, Dunedin Town Hall. We are delighted that Southern Sinfonia is presenting this work as part of their first International Series concert programme. After the success of the performance in Auckland last year in November, it is a pleasure to be performing this work again this year, for our Dunedin audience.

We need your help

You will be aware of the financial demands and challenges arts organisations face and we greatly welcome all support and financial assistance. We appreciate your attendance at our concerts most of all, but we also value any donation. We have a growing list of Friends whom we treasure. If you would remember City Choir Dunedin in your will, that would be appreciated too. We assure you that all bequests and donations are put towards concert expenses.

Please find details of the benefits and how to become a Friend of the Choir on our Friends page.
