Christmas cards for those alone this year

Monday, 2 November 2020

We will again be collecting Christmas cards for those facing Christmas alone this year with a drop box set up at the Staff Club throughout November and December. You can either write a message using one of our cards while waiting for a coffee or drop in cards that you've already filled with messages of love. Cards can be shop bought or hand made (envelopes are not necessary). All we ask is that you fill them with a message aimed at bringing a smile and a sense of feeling remembered to the older members of our community that may otherwise face Christmas alone. If you can't get to the Staff Club or would like more information or ideas please get in touch.

Southern Consort of Voices welcomes new members

Tuesday, 10 March 2020

The Southern Consort of Voices is a chamber choir in Dunedin. Our repertoire features early music, contemporary music (especially by New Zealand composers) and everything in between!

We welcome new members. Currently, we are looking especially for tenors and basses. If you are interested in joining us, please get in contact with our director, Daniel Kelly

The process for joining the choir is that you join us for a rehearsal, and if you feel that the choir is right for you then you audition. We rehearse on Monday evenings very near the Dunedin campus, and we usually perform four concerts each year.

You do not need to be a trained singer, but good tuning and the ability to blend are important. We do learn a lot of music, so good music reading skills are highly desirable, as is experience from other choirs.

We welcome you to contact us if you're interested. You can discover more about the choir at our website or find us on Facebook at
