THE EDGECUMBE CHOIR - WHAKATANE BASED

 

VISION

The Edgecumbe Choir’s objective is to promote the practice and performance of choral and orchestral music.  

The choir was formed at Edgecumbe in 1957, but since 2000 has been based in Whakatane, practising on Thursday

nights between 7 and 9pm at the Church of St George and St John in Domain Road.  Though much of the music the

choir sings is religious in origin and the performances are often held in churches, the choir has no religious affiliation.

Members are drawn from around the Eastern Bay of Plenty.  Our vision is to be “A vibrant and inclusive group of singers who enjoy learning a range of choral music to an excellent standard, and performing to a wide and appreciative audience”.  

We welcome new members and supporters. Contact: edgecumbechoir@gmail.com
