Want to join the ultimate inter-generational choir?

Sing It To My Face is an inter-generational confrontation through song, created by Barbarian Productions.

Four choirs of volunteer singers representing four generations let each other know how they really feel about society and one another, in a theatrical performance of a fully scored choral arrangement.

The show premiered at Wellington Cathedral in 2014 and has toured to Wanaka, Nelson and the Wairarapa. This year it’s coming to Auckland, and we want you to be a part of it!


We are looking for singers from 6 - 99 years of age, from anywhere in the Auckland region. Confident singers and first-timers welcome!

The Sing It To My Face lyrics are taken entirely from your responses. To create the song lyrics we're asking you to share your thoughts about the different generations in our society.

This text will be collated, edited and re-organised by Jo Randerson (Barbarian Productions), set to music by Julian Raphael (Community Music Junction) and rehearsed and performed by local singers - including you.

Whatever we do, you never seem to appreciate us or change your minds about us. It’s hopeless trying.
