We are pleased to announce that Vocal FX is bringing The Westminster Chorus to Aotearoa/New Zealand in 2017 to celebrate their 15th Anniversary.

Based in Southern California, The Westminster Chorus is widely appreciated as one of the finest a cappella ensembles in the world. In addition to the chorus’ 3 BHS International Gold Medals, The Westminster Chorus has also won Choir of the World title in 2009.

The new tour will take place from the 14th to 23rd September 2017, spanning the length of both the North and South Islands. Shows have been confirmed in several New Zealand centres, including Christchurch, Blenheim, Wellington and Auckland. The journey will culminate in a performance at the Young Singers in Harmony National Competition in Auckland.

The Westminster Chorus was last in New Zealand in 2014 as guests of BHNZ. They were the headline act for the Pan Pacific Convention in Wellington. Their tour was a tremendous success, providing New Zealand barbershoppers and audiences with an opportunity to engage with a world class chorus.

This is an exciting opportunity for the barbershop community of New Zealand. We will be working with choruses and organisations from across the country in the lead up to the tour. Further information, including new show locations and dates, will be confirmed over the coming months.
