About the Kāpiti Chorale

With Trumpet and Voice - a Celebration of Christmas

This concert is proving to be a popular one - Sunday has sold out.  However, there are still tickets available for Friday night.  Phone 04 293-4092 to get your ticket so you don't miss out.  

Christmas is Coming and Kāpiti Chorale and Kāpiti Brass Band are combining forces for an entertaining concert. Joyous music, some traditional and some new, will have toes tapping and voices in tune as you join in some of the carols.

Music Directors Eric Sidoti for the Chorale and David Wells of the Kāpiti Brass, flourish the batons as the Chorale and Brass present a variety of works including Hodie! This Day by American composer Z Randall Stroope, Holst's Masters in the Hall, and Rutter's Angel Chorus, along with arrangements of The Twelve Days of Christmas Brass and I saw Three Ships.  Organist Heather Easting accompanies several pieces including Handel's And the Glory of the Lord, the band will perform individual items and Ann-Marie Stapp, Assistant Music Director for the Chorale will also conduct.  A fitting finale to our joint Christmas concert is the Hallelujah Chorus.  

Two concerts on Friday 24 November at 7.30pm and Sunday 26 November at 3pm in St Paul's Church, Kāpiti, promise to be jubilant occasions, celebrating the joy of the Christmas season. Take advantage of our family ticket to enjoy an afternoon's entertainment.

The Kāpiti Chorale with up to 85 voices - one of the largest choirs on the Kāpiti Coast - normally presents three concerts each year.

Practices are held on Monday evenings from 7:30pm at St Paul's Church Hall, on the corner of Langdale Ave and Kāpiti Road, Paraparaumu.

Why not come along and see if singing in the Kāpiti Chorale is for you?  We welcome new singers, and you can attend up to four practices without obligation as a "guest singer".  You may then be invited to become a full member. 

All voice parts may apply - there is no audition, but singers are expected to be able to sight-read music and be able to hold a part.  The Choir is limited to 85 voices after which a waiting list will be opened.

Contact the Membership Secretary if you'd like to come along and try us out.

Subs: here we explain why we have to pay membership "subs"; how much; when; and how to make those payments - for both full members and guests transitioning to full membership.

The Kāpiti Chorale is an Incorporated Society whose objectives, as stated in its constitution, are "to encourage choral singing by public performances of choral works and other related activities."

More information for (prospective) members is here.

Note:  Right now we are especially keen to have more sopranos, tenors and basses.
