Leather and Lace - 2021

Leather and Lace was a journey through the modern musical era, the synthesis of hard and soft, from smoke-filled cabaret dens to glam rock stadiums. The journey was also literal for The Glamaphones, who traveled to Palmerston North and performed at The Globe Theatre.

WISH - Sing for HELP - May 2019

Greatest Hits Volume II - March 2019

This programme was packed with fan favourites, drawing on songs we’ve performed over the past four years under Musical Director Rachel Hyde. There was something for everyone: from Gareth Farr’s “During These Days” (performed at Parliament to mark the 30th anniversary of homosexual law reform), to Don McGlashan’s “Anchor Me” and “Bathe In the River” (arranged for our Homegrown set performed at the 2018 Sydney Mardi Gras), and “This Is Me” (a highlight from our November 2018 Out and Loud and Proud concert previously performed with Island Bay Primary School “Glama-kids”).

Our holiday singalong to close off a great year!

There's a place for us: The Glamaphones sing Bernstein - October 2019

This programme of two halves featured songs from “the greatest musical of all-time”, West Side Story, as well as the choral classic, Chichester Psalms. While being pieces of contrasting genres, they were the works of a singular man of genius, and have been brought together by the Glamaphones’ inimitable passion of delivery. The choir was conducted by Thomas Nikora, and the venue was St. Peter's on Willis

Concert for ILGA - March 2019

The choir performed at the Michael Fowler center for the closing day of the ILGA world conference, for the first time in Wellington. It was a colourful performance with some of The Glamaphones' Greatest Hits.

Singing Out and Loud and Proud - November 2018

With this concert we celebrating Pride in all its forms. The programme was full of sing-along anthems that had the audience on their feet, reaching into the vault of rainbow classics (Gaynor, Madonna and Streisand) and through to modern classics from Swift and Cyrus. All was rendered in the richness of our four-part choral harmonies. There was music from local composers, and contributions from special guests, Les Ukes, and a chorus of local primary school singers (The Glama-kids).

Rachel Hyde had again given our programme her golden touch, taking pieces from across the musical spectrum to balance the depth of Amy Winehouse’s Back to Black with the power of Pink and the Purple One. Popular bangers were matched with more classical choral pieces, but what kind of Glamaphones concert would it be without a bit of Cyndi Lauper or Dolly Parton?

Homegrown Aotearoa Concerts 2018

The Glamaphones hit the high notes with their version of Homegrown Aotearoa at two November concerts: one at their home base of St Andrews on the Terrace and the other at their favourite up the coast venue at Paekakariki. Both concerts were attended by large group of enthusiastic raving fans.

The choir was lucky to have specially commissioned arrangements of some Kiwi pop icons to sing. Rosie Salas, a Wellington composer, arranged Anchor me and Greenstone. And Don McGlashan arranged his song, Bathe in the river, which the choir also sang as an encore. For the first time they also had a beat boxer accompanying the choir.

The Glamaphones sung out in Wellington and for the first time, Paekakariki, as they presented their May concert “A touch of the Irish and a dash of Kiwi".

The repertoire for both concerts included a selection of NZ songs that a group from the choir will showcase at the Various Voices international choral festival for gay, lesbian, bisexual and transgender choirs held in Dublin this June. This will be the first year that the Glamaphones will be represented at this huge event.


2-4 April 2014 at Silverstream

The choir camp, a favorite yearly event, went off with a bang at the Silverstream again this year. Lots of singing practice was had in preparedness for our Mid Year Concert and those Glams heading off to various Voices in Dublin.

The Saturday night dance "dress as your favorite singer" ended up with 3 Tina Turners, 3 Bob Marleys, 3 George Michaels and many more hilarious costumes. A great "camp" time was had by all. 


8 December at Pataka Museum Porirua

This year we decided to head up to Pataka and do a free Xmas Concert there. We had a great time singing a diverse range of carols and enjoying the beautiful Pataka environment. We had the crowd singing along for our final concert for the year 2013.

Glamaphones Choir Camp 2012

21 January 2012 in Wellington

It was a stunning day for Out in the square - sunny with a light breeze. As part of the entertainment the Glamaphones sang a bracket of songs from last year's concert. Lots of people came up to our staff afterwards to complement us on our performance. Hopefully our performance will result in lots of potential members coming along to our open rehearsals on the next three Thursdays. Update: And at the first two open rehearsals we got 29 newbies, half of who have joined us! We have quintupled the soprano section... Well, we did start from a base of 3!


13 November 2011 at St Andrews on the Terrace

A full house and a partial standing ovation - what more could you ask for at our first concert as a mixed voice voice choir? Singing a number of "angelic" songs by composers such as Sarah McLachlan, Robbie Williams and Billy Joel, we had a great time and so did our audience.
