Nelson Civic Choir is a non-audition, community-based choir that is one of the oldest in the country. Our aim is to provide high quality performances of major classical choral works as well as many lesser known works. These concerts, in conjunction with orchestral or other accompaniment, add greatly to Nelson’s rich cultural tradition. We would love you to be part of our community. You are welcome to come along for 1 or 2 rehearsals –  please contact  – Elizabeth, Chair of Civic at [email protected]  or Kay, Secretary at [email protected]

Information and Fees

We are a non-audition choir, which means that any singer in the Nelson region is welcomed. You do not have to be able to read music to join Nelson Civic Choir. We use sheet music and rehearse with an accompanist. Learning new musical repertoire and participating in concert performances is an enjoyable and life-enhancing activity for our members and gives pleasure to our audiences.

As a member there are regular concerts, social occasions, workshops and more.

When: We meet every Tuesday at NCMA’s recital room from 6.50pm to 9pm starting with warmups.

Membership Fees: Our annual membership fee, which includes the loan of music we are singing, venue hire, conductor, and accompanist fees is $180.00 for an adult and $90.00 for a student.

For those only available to sing in specific concerts a reduced fee is charged and will be advised by the committee on inquiry.
