Welcome! Kia ora!

The Cecilian Singers is a choir of women’s voices from the beautiful garden city of Christchurch situated on the fertile plains of the South Island of New Zealand. Christchurch is known for its rich cultural history of great music-making, and the Cecilian Singers are big contributors, giving choral performances in the city and surrounding districts.We sing for the joy of making great music together

We sing for the joy of making great music together – and having some fun on the way! We are women from a wide range of backgrounds, occupations, interests and cultures – but we have music in common. Our age range is wide – from young women to musical grandmothers. Any woman who loves to sing is welcome.

If you live in Christchurch and you are looking for the opportunity to sing with other women, consider coming to one of our rehearsals, or introduce yourself by email to me.

If you would like to be on our contact list to receive information about up-coming concerts, consider joining our list of Supporters, and of course, we would love to see you at our next concert!
