Please help us bring the world’s greatest choral music to the people of the Waikato and beyondWaikato
Hamilton Civic Choir's mission is to continue to be Hamilton’s premiere classical choir. Our passion is bringing the the world’s greatest choral music to the people of the Waikato and beyond.
Collaboration with other musicians, artists, and groups is very important to us. We believe that by making music with others, we will continue building a hub of musical activity in the Waikato - and you can help us with this.
Please join us in bringing a wide variety of choral music to our audiences, and helping to create lasting, positive growth for the musical hub in the Waikato and further afield.
We would be most grateful for any donation, great or small.

More about us
Since beginning in 1946, the Hamilton Civic Choir has enjoyed a reputation as one of New Zealand’s finest Choirs.
Being a fully auditioned choir, we are able to perform works outside the scope of many community-based choirs. In addition to the large choral works of the great composers, usually performed with organ or orchestral accompaniment and the best national and international soloists, the choir’s repertoire includes chamber music and other shorter and more modern works.
Currently we comprise about 50 singers, some of whom travel from other Waikato towns to sing with us. The choir has a wide and varied repertoire, presenting masterpieces of western musical culture under the direction of both local and international conductors.
Our high standing in the music scene in this country is shown by the fact that we have been chosen several times to sing major choral works with the New Zealand Symphony Orchestra.
Our mission is: “To continue to be Hamilton’s premiere classical choir, regularly presenting the world’s greatest choral music, at the highest possible standard, to the people of the Waikato and beyond for the mutual enjoyment and enrichment of choir and audience.”
