Wairarapa Singers is an incorporated charitable society which was established in 1994. We are one of the finest choirs in the region and currently we have over 70 members. Our main concerts typically attract an audience of 400 people. We aim to make the best music we possibly can joining with local musicians and singers to make memorable events. Our new music director is Andrew Atkins who currently is assistant conductor of Wellington Orchestra and a tutor at Victoria University, NZ School of Music. We are affiliated to the NZ Choral Federation.
Our two goals are to share our love of singing while having fun and enjoying music old and new.
Rehearsals are weekly and are held in the Rosewood Funeral Home, Queen Street, Masterton from 6.45 pm until 9.00 pm, on Wednesdays. We perform three main concerts a year, usually held in the autumn and spring, and possibly a concert at the end of the year.
As with other choirs, our 2020 programme has been severely affected by Covid 19. Our only concert this year will be a Christmas Celebration. Please refer to the Concerts page.
Some of our recent concerts have been: Haydn’s Creation, Bach’s St Matthew Passion, Handel’s Messiah, Opera Delights, and a joint concert with the National Male Choir of NZ.
