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.
Rehearsals for our August concert will commence on Tuesday 4 May.
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.
Given the disruption to 2020 with COVID19 the fee for all current fully paid up members will be $90 from 1 July to 31 December. For all new members, starting in February 2021 the fee will be $180 for the calendar year.
For those only available to sing in specific concerts the fee is $60 per concert. For students the fee is $30 per concert.
