The Boys’ Choir and the Girls’ Choir of All Hallows Chapel are auditioned choirs made up of students in Years 5-8. Auditions take place at the beginning of each year, and after a period of probation, students are admitted as Choristers of one of the choirs.
These two choirs alternate singing at Family Chapel Services and sing together for Carol Services. Both choirs are affiliates of the Royal School of Church Music and choristers are able to participate in the Voice for Life training scheme. Both choirs are robed in the traditional manner of the Anglican Church. The choirs are often invited to sing at concerts, functions or parish churches with the Diocese of Waikato. As appropriate, tours to different parts of the country are organised for each of the choirs.
Southwell also has a Junior Choir for younger students. This choir is led by the Headmaster and another staff member. Regular practices take place each week. The Junior Choir predominantly performs at inhouse events.
