Founded in 1970 by Neil Shroff, The Auckland Boys' Choir has seen many hundreds of boys pass through its ranks. Under his lead, the choir took part in many presentations including accompanying the New Zealand Symphony Orchestra, the Philharmonia of Auckland, Auckland Choral Society and the Auckland Youth Choir. He has also conducted the choir on several international tours to Canada, Australia and the United States.
The Auckland Girls' Choir was formed in 1996. The choirs reflect the young musical talent in the Auckland area of New Zealand and they have travelled around the world showcasing that talent and gaining a grand reputation in the process.
Today - 2007 - the choir consists of up to 40 trebles drawn from wider Auckland. The age range is from 8 to 13+ years. The choir rehearses once a week in Epsom. Coming events for 2007 include hosting the Golden Gate Boys' Choir from San Francisco with a concert at 2pm in St Benedicts Church, Newton, Auckland Sunday 17th June and the choir presenting its own concert on Saturday 28th July, 7.30pm at St Lukes Church in Remuera.
