Mosaic Choir

Nelson’s longest-standing world music choir, Mosaic has been bringing a cappella pleasure to audiences for over 20 years with their high energy and vibrancy. This 45-strong choir is directed by Shannel Courtney and has been described as one of Nelson hidden treasures. Their repertoire covers most the continents of the world, including songs from the Pacific, with a special focus on African music with its uplifting harmonies and rhythms. The inspiration that drives Mosaic is the sense of community that singing fosters and the privilege of experiencing the diversity of musical cultures through song.
