MOSAIC is an unauditioned community choir based in Cambridge, New Zealand. Our group is made up of regular individuals with a wide range of ages, cultures, occupations and interests with one thing common; we all absolutely love to sing!
Our name MOSAIC, reflects the idea of many small pieces joined together to make something even more wonderful than they were on their own. We all like to think we're pretty amazing individuals but have discovered that joined together as a choir, we are capable of absolute magic!
