Gig Information

Bringing together eight of the finest choirs at the 2024 World Choir Games, these two concerts at the Auckland Town Hall convey the wide variety of choir types and music styles that will be on glorious show throughout the Games.

Concert One on Thursday 11 July features two mixed chamber choirs with distinctly different sounds, the acclaimed Graduate Choir from New Zealand and the exciting Delaware Choral Scholars from the USA. They will be joined by two equal-voice groups, the smooth-toned Festival Statesmen from Australia and Ungklang, an entertaining young Danish ensemble who like to shake things up!

The Graduate Choir was established in 2001 by conductor Terence Maskell and is celebrated for its rich and compelling sound, featuring singers from across greater Auckland who reflect the region's ethnic diversity.

The Festival Statesmen hail, along with their artistic director Jonathan Bligh, from Adelaide, Australia. They are a multi-award winning, dynamic men’s a cappella chorus with a wide-ranging repertoire from classical to contemporary.

Ungklang from Denmark is a young, unconducted group, known for breaking the usual expectations of classical choral singing and bringing innovation to the stage by blending “the new, the old, the borrowed, and the unexpected”.

Delaware Choral Scholars are fresh from their big win at Llangollen Eisteddfod Competition in Wales. Directed by Paul D Head, Scholars are a highly auditioned, frequently touring choir from the USA that has grown out of the university’s choral studies programme.
