You will hear:
- Te Roopu O Kihi (IDEA)
- The Kapa Haka group from IDEA Services are a group of 40 from across the Waikato who love to entertain. As the opening act they are sure to delight and have you out of your seats.
- Mosaic Waikato Modern Choir
- Mosaic is an un-auditioned community choir based in Cambridge. The group is made up of individuals with a wide range of interests, backgrounds & occupations, who all love to SING. The name Mosaic reflects the idea of many small pieces joined together to make something even more wonderful than they were on their own. They are pretty amazing individuals but have discovered that joined together as a choir, they are capable of absolute magic!
- Ohinemuri Singers
- Ohinemuri Singers have been going for over 75 years in some guise or other. Members come from Thames, Paeroa and Waihi area. Mostly older folk, they currently have 25 – 30 singers with 10 Sops, 12 altos, 3 tenors and 3 basses, who all love to sing and get involved with their community.
- Waikato Rivertones
- The Waikato Rivertones have been harmonising for over 20 years and are currently under the direction of Master Director Kate Sinclair. This fun-loving group of women of all ages (from 9yrs-70+) come from all over the Waikato/Bay of Plenty, and they have one thing in common – the love of four-part acapella harmony.
- This award-winning chorus is committed to advancing the musical art-form of barbershop through education and performance. They regularly receive coaching from New Zealand and International coaches in order to constantly improve. They compete nationally on a regular basis and have represented New Zealand at several International Sweet Adeline Competitions, most recently in Las Vegas in October 2017. Their most celebrated success was in 2007 when they won the Gold Medal at the Harmony Classic contest in San Antonio, Texas.
- Entertaining a ‘home crowd’ is what they love best – you may have heard them at the Hamilton Anzac Day commemorations, Waitangi Day celebrations, Christmas concerts or perhaps at a private function. With a repertoire that ranges from heart-felt ballads to lively toe-tapping uptunes there is something for everyone to enjoy.
- Te Aroha Singers Community Choir
- Was started 5 years ago, and they are a non-auditioned community choir, with a wide repertoire across many genres. With members all across the region, they have one major concert a year with other performances in the community. They love to hold workshops and collaboration projects with other choirs
- Male Voices Waikato
- A traditional male voice choir formed in February 1995 to give men the opportunity to sing and socialize in a relaxed atmosphere. The choir provides a variety of music to suit all tastes and provides an interesting and varied programme for their public. One of the positive aspects of their repertoire is that they try to include music from a wide range of styles including pop, gospel, classical, jazz, folk, musical and contemporary. Auditions are not required and all men who can hold a tune are welcome.
- Might River Harmony
- Mighty River Harmony is a chorus of 40 men travelling from all over the Waikato (some even from the Bay of Plenty) to rehearse in Hamilton every week. Since 2010, Mighty River Harmony has won the NZ bronze medal 6 times and won the silver medal in Blenheim in October 2016. Mighty River Harmony are the current chorus gold medalists, winning the NZ Chorus gold medal at the 2017 Pan Pacific Competitions in Sydney in September.
