About the Kāpiti Chorale


After five years and to complete their 35th year, Kapiti Chorale and friends are performing Handel's wonderful oratorio Messiah in St Paul's Church on Friday 23 November at 7.30pm and at Ngā Purapura, Ōtaki on Sunday 25 November at 2.30pm.

Handel's Messiah has delighted audiences from the time it was first performed in 1742 in Dublin, having been written in just four weeks.  Some arias and choruses which are not usually sung will be included - Let all the angels of God worship Him and If God be for us. Along with our dedicated and talented soloists Nicole Davey, Ellen Barrett, Jamie Young and Roger Wilson, we will be accompanied by an orchestral ensemble with leader Jay Hancox and conducted by our Music Director Eric Sidoti.


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.

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.
