The NZ Young@Heart Chorus Inc.
The NZ Young@Heart Chorus is a non-profit charitable society dedicated to over-seventies men and women singing contemporary music. Members mostly live independently all over Auckland, from Orewa to Ngatea and meet to sing every Monday morning at St Aiden's Church, Ascot Avenue, Remuera.
Our repertoire includes songs by Black Eyed Peas, Red Hot Chilli Peppers and One Direction. We are definitely not your usual Rock Stars!
Our principal sponsor is Summerset Retirement Villages and we are grateful for their provision of uniforms and for the salary for our talented musical director, Christina Bevan.

End of Year Shows
We have performed at three very different venues recently. A visit to the Correctional Facility for women at Wiri proved to be a rip roaring success, not the least because the women entertained us after our show. Shortly afterwards we were the surprise guests of the Gerontology Nurses Conference held at Waipuna Lodge. It was a very warm and appreciative audience and during one inspirational song we had their overseas speaker in tears! Next up we sang in the street for the Howick Midnight Madness event. A good time was had by all and we added some Christmas songs to our repertoire for the occasion.
Our final outing for the year will be to entertain at the Botany/Dannemora Probus Club Christmas party.
