The NZ Young@Heart Chorus Inc.
View us on TV
The NZ Young@Heart Chorus is a non-profit charitable society dedicated to over-seventy year old men and women singing songs from the charts. Members mostly live independently all over Auckland, from Orewa to Pukekohe and meet to sing every Monday morning at St Aiden's Church, Ascot Avenue, Remuera.
Currently we have 43 singing members and an invaluable support group. We rehearse weekly and travel the country to sing in theatres, schools, church halls, conference centres, prison and even Wellington Cathedral.
Recent songs are Shake it Off - Taylor Swift, Living on a Prayer - Bon Jovi and Angels - Robbie Williams
We are definitely not your usual Rock Stars!
Musical Director -Chris Bevan

Meet our cast for David Greig's award-winning play THE EVENTS, the biggest cast in Silo history.
New Zealand acting heavyweight TANDI WRIGHT plays Claire, a liberal priest and choir leader. Tandi was last seen on stage in Silo's celebrated 2010 production WHEN THE RAIN STOPS FALLING. She is best known for her extensive TV career, starring in NOTHING TRIVIAL, OUTRAGEOUS FORTUNE, SHORTLAND STREET and more recently in the US TV series THE RETURNED.
BEULAH KOALE makes his Silo debut in THE EVENTS, playing a variety of roles. On screen he is well known for his recurring appearance on SHORTLAND STREET and his leading role in last year's indie New Zealand film THE LAST SAINT. His theatre credits include Massive's THE BRAVE, ATC's SONS and the critically acclaimed BLACK FAGGOT.
Accompanying Tandi and Beulah on stage every night will be a different choir from around Auckland. Representing the community in the play and community at large, each of these choirs will discover THE EVENTS at the same time as you, the audience:
