Wintergarden, The Civic

Special Events


Two of Aotearoa’s musical heavyweights come together with you to form two audience choirs in a battle of voice!  

Under the tutelage of your choirmaster - be it brilliant music director Jason Te Mete (Tira, K'Rd Strip, Little Shop Of Horrors) or legendary musician Laughton Kora (KORA, Fly My Pretties), this social singalong experience will reconnect us with the joy of coming together in collective song as two choirs made up of you, the audience, face-off in triumphant battle cry of music. 

Grab yourself a complimentary drink, learn a sweet harmony to a classic Kiwi hit, and join forces to see which choir can belt out the winning song of the night!
