Musical Director


Chalium Poppy 


With impressive international and national recognition

as a professional church musician, conductor, oratorio

soloist, occasional operatic singer, music commentator,

clinician and teacher Chalium has brought a fresh look to

the choir.


He has received national accolades and recognition of

his commitment to musical excellence and in particular

for his exploration of lesser-known choral works.


In 2010 he received a commendation from the French Consulate to New Zealand for his efforts in championing the music of the French Baroque which is his specilaised style.
