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 Orakei Primary School Hall.
Currently we have 31 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 Hello - Adele, History - One Direction, Chasing Cars - Snow Patrol
We are definitely not your usual Rock Stars!

2017 - New Sponsor - New Members - New Songs - New Venues
We are delighted to welcome aboard Arvida Group as our principle Sponsor. We hope for a long and happy relationship as together we show New Zealand that there is much good health, happiness and inspiration to be made through singing modern music.
We plan to visit Christchurch in April next year, when we will get to know some of our new villager friends and have the opportunity of entertaining them. Our show will first be seen on April 1st at the Waipuna Hotel and Conference Centre, Auckland and then transfers to Christchurch the following weekend. The Christchurch venue is to be announced.
We will have an entirely new repertoire ready for these occasions but you are likely to hear some of the old songs as the Chorus reaches five years old. That is something to celebrate.
This year we have welcomed wonderful new soloists to our ranks and this is shaping up to be our best concert yet.
