Choirs Aotearoa New Zealand's purpose is to create, nurture and promote vocal excellence in choral singing.

Our objective is to sustain and promote two complementary but distinct choirs. An internationally renowned professional choir - Voices New Zealand Chamber Choir and a youth choir which inspires and develops New Zealand's extraordinary young talent, the nationally selected New Zealand Youth Choir.
