Tāmaki Makaurau Auckland is looking forward to welcoming musicians and supporters from around the world to the World Choir Games in 2024.
Our city is renowned for its warm hospitality and values of whanaungatanga (kinship), wairua (wellbeing) and kotahitanga (unity).
We are a vibrant and culturally diverse city, home to more than 220 ethnic groups and the largest Pacific and Māori populations of any city in the world. This diversity is reflected in our rich and varied music scene - music is in our city’s DNA and we celebrate our performers and our music sector across a wide range of genres and styles. We are a UNESCO City of Music and have previously shared our stages with a host of international headliners and local acts.
Auckland and New Zealand are known globally for delivering high-quality international events and our city regularly hosts major cultural festivals that draw tens of thousands of participants and spectators.
When planning your visit, I encourage you to leave time to explore our beautiful region. From our stunning beaches and regional parks to the Hauraki Gulf islands, our vibrant waterfront and central city, iconic maunga (volcanic cones) and many shops, restaurants, bars, cafes and wineries, there’s something in our world-class city for everyone to enjoy.
My very best wishes to all choristers, musicians and supporters for a successful and enjoyable World Choir Games.
Enjoy the music and enjoy Auckland.
