Every performance of Handel’s Messiah is a special event, and Auckland Choral’s 2018 concert will be extra-special, as it is the choir’s 100th consecutive year of Messiah performances.

Since the choir’s founding in 1855, consecutive performances were interrupted only due to the outbreak of World War 1 and the Spanish flu epidemic in 1918.

To mark this momentous century of consecutive Messiahs, the choir will be joined by visiting choir singers from Brisbane, Dunedin and Auckland Choral Alumni.

Internationally renowned soloists include NZ’s most famous tenor Simon O’Neill, soprano Marlena Devoe, and bass Martin Snell whose ‘Trumpets shall Sound’ stays in the memory all year round.

Join us for this memorable, powerful and joyous celebration of our ‘one hundred-not-out’ tradition.
