Shore Singers

Shore Singers is a mixed choir of over 40 members. We are a non profit volunteer group that seeks to present beautiful music  from a wide repertoire and to a professional standard. With music from classical to modern popular genres, we entertain people of all ages, make friends with others who love music and hope to be of service to the community, bringing pleasure each month to a range of audiences. We also sponsor the U16 vocal aria in the annual North Shore Performing Arts Competitions thus contributing to many a young person’s music career. At the end of the year we close with a popular annual concert, with proceeds going to a local charity.

The musical director is Beth Donnell who comes with high musical and teacher qualifications.  Beth has taught in NZ and overseas, including London, Montreal and Sydney, training young people’s choirs, bands, jazz groups, and musical productions.  She brings great skill to the choir with unique arrangements of many works to suit the choir voices. Soloists in the choir receive valuable encouragement and assistance. The choir still requires strong voices in all sections for men and women.

Rainbow Korean Group

The Rainbow Club provides group activities for older Korean adults. Between 50-70 Korean seniors gather for fellowship, exercise, singing, education on healthy lifestyles and English conversation classes.
The group meets every Wednesday (during school terms) between 10.00am and 2pm in the Takapuna Methodist Church hall.
Activities such as gentle aerobic exercise, dance or yoga are a regular part of each session.
The English conversation classes are popular and the weekly singing sessions include learning the NZ anthem in Maori and English. A team of 23 volunteers help run the club and cook a nutritious Korean style lunch for the members.
