Nelson Civic Choir – bringing the best of classical choral music to the North of the South. As a non-auditioned, community based group of choristers, we love the feeling of singing together with a magnificent conductor, and some gorgeous accompaniment – a choice of a chamber orchestra, the great Cawthron Organ, or the Steinway concert grand. And all together in the Nelson Centre for Musical Arts.
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 $200.00 for an adult and $100.00 for a student. Payment  of these totals in 2023 can be made either once off or in twelve monthly payments of $17, by direct credit.

Fees are set at the AGM and should be debated at this time. We welcome discussion by email on this point and are open to change.

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