Join Us.

We can offer the pleasure of singing in a small, expert ensemble, the challenge of learning exciting music in a wide range of styles and … a friendly cup of tea in the break at rehearsal. The choir has a strong social side and several gatherings are held during the year, which may take the form of a barbecue, attending a concert or a movie.

You are welcome to come to a few rehearsals without any commitment to experience the choir, before deciding whether or not to audition. Rehearsals are held on Mondays at the Music Block, St Andrew’s College, Cnr Normans and Papanui Rd, from 7.15 pm to 9.30 pm. Some additional rehearsals are also usually held the week prior to a performance.

Music Scores
Music is provided free to you on loan from the choir.  All your music will be issued with your own number, and must be returned at the end of each concert.  

Annual Subs
The annual sub for 2017 is $170, reducible to $160 if paid by the due date. Please speak to Janine, Lois or Paul if you think you may have difficulty in paying your subscription.

Concert dress
Women wear black long-sleeved top (no collars or polo necks), black skirt or trousers down to the ground, black stockings and (comfortable!) shoes – provided by you.  A green pashmina is provided by the choir and distributed at each concert. The pashmina is held with a pin – you can provide a brooch of your own, or we will give you a safety pin!  Feel free to wear jewellery – but not too distracting for the conductor!

Men (all sartorial elegance!) don a dinner suit, white long-sleeved shirt, black socks, black shoes, black bow tie – all provided by you. 

For more information about rehearsals and auditions, please contact Janine Heeringa, president of Jubes, on 03 352 4550 or email
