Festival Singers 2021 plans

Thanks for visiting our website.

We have resumed 7:00pm Monday night rehearsals at Newlands Christian Assembly 126 Newlands Road, Newlands, Wellington

If you are looking for a choir to sing with in 2021 we’d love hear from you.

Here is a summary of our plans for the remainder of 2021:

  • Dvořák Mass in D: 3:00pm Sunday 23 May 2021.
    St James Anglican Church, Lower Hutt

    We will also perform Bob Chilcott’s A Little Jazz Mass

Come and be swept up in the drama and vigour of two vibrant, constrasting masses –  Dvorák’s epic Mass in D, sung with four excellent soloists, followed by Chilcott’s infectious Little Jazz Mass.
