The Graduate Choir NZ has earned international reputation for the performance of choral music at its very best. It was established in South Auckland as a result of demand from a number of singers who had been choristers while still at school under director Terence Maskell (hence the name).

"This multi-ethnic Auckland choir of 35 has strong Polynesian numbers. That's a guarantee against bloodless singing and towards a full and rich tone with spontaneous emotional involvement. The choir sounds assured in the deepest classical heavyweights such as the double canon writing in Brahms' Geistliches Lied and their powerfully declamatory singing in Charles Stanford's long and pro-active sacred work. This and the rich choral sonority of David Hamilton's Karanga are the two standout items. They respond superbly to Hamilton's imaginative changes of colouring and density. Director Terence Maskell has shaped this into one of our most exciting smaller choirs." - The Listener
