A little bit about this choir...
Over 60 years ago rugby great Cliff Morgan experienced the thrill of a Lions Tour in South Africa and has supported this choir since it first began. During their three-week tour, the choir will perform concerts in Christchurch, Palmerston North, Napier, and Auckland.

Formed by Mark Burrows, M.D. of Melody Music in 2001 for the Lions Tour to Australia, the choir perform a wide selection of music.

The choristers are drawn from all over the home nations and are truly representative.

In 2005, they travelled to New Zealand with the Lions and were struck by the beauty of the country and the friendliness of its people and are delighted to be visiting our shores again.

Prior to leaving the United Kingdom, the choir performed for the Lions Squad in preparation for the massive task of playing against the mighty All Blacks.
