The Wellsford-based Local Vocals Choir is promising an energetic and varied performance at the Wellsford Community Centre on Saturday July 9.
The concert will also feature Kaipara Flats women’s choir Kai Rhythmix and ukulele group Totally Uked.
The choirs will perform A capella, and for many of the singers it will be their first public performance.
Both choirs will sing a varied set of songs, and also perform a few items together.
Local Vocals Choir also has an emergent leadership programme, with budding song-leaders mentored by choir leader Helen Diaz. One of these is Miriam Chalk, who will lead a medley of songs in this concert.
The choir began in 2012 as the Wellsford Community Choir, based on the philosophy of being inclusive and accepting, with no auditions.
Choir founder Sally Randall says it now has singers from all ages and stages.
“I believe that we all have a voice,” Sally says. “LVC aims to facilitate individuals to connect to the joy and health benefits of community singing. I’m sure our singers would all agree that there is really nothing that compares to the experience and feeling of singing in a large group and performing together. We have a lot of fun.”
The LVC singers meet each Thursday evening of the school term from 7-9pm at the Wellsford Community Centre and welcome all who want to sing.
