Albany Singers was formed by Anne Connolly-Munt in 2009 as a non-auditioned community choir based in Albany, Auckland, New Zealand.
It performs two to three concerts a year with a repertoire encompassing songs from Broadway shows, popular opera choruses, New Zealand composers’ works and some traditional Christmas music.
Albany Singers has a membership of approximately 50 – not all of whom participate at the one time.
The objects of the Albany Singers are, inter alia;
- To promote the interest and welfare of the Albany Singers in Auckland and elsewhere.
- To offer the opportunity to interested singers to experience participation in the performance of a wide variety of choral works.
- To sing together for the mutual enjoyment of members.
- To present concerts for the entertainment and enjoyment of the public.
- To promote and progress choral music.
In the past, Albany Singers were invited to participate with the Auckland Symphony Orchestra in the Bruce Mason Centre’s annual presentation of the “Last Night of the Proms” on Auckland’s North Shore. At this time Albany Singers combined with the orchestra and performed two concerts to capacity audiences.
Audiences to Albany Singers concerts consistently attract in excess of 150 and from these concerts Albany Singers endeavour to give something back to the community by way of donations to organisations such as North Shore Hospice, CanTeen, Foundation for the Blind and the NZ Heart Foundation.
