Tamariki is Kokopelli’s youngest ensemble. With an emphasis on play and discovery, this group explores singing and music in a secure but exciting environment. Tamariki’s members rehearse in four separate groups of 25 singers or fewer, combining for performances into Kokopelli’s largest children's choir with around 70 members. ‘Tamariki’ (tah-mah-REE-kee) is the Maori word for ‘children’—because nothing goes better together than children and music, after all!

Tamariki has two conductors. The Monday sections are led by founding conductor Rachel Majorowicz, and accompanied by Bryan LeGrow. Wednesday's groups are conducted by Natasha Lybbert and accompanied by Daniel Belland.

The choir sections meet weekly, with the choir year running September through late May each season.

Being part of Tamariki and the whole Kokopelli Choir Association is like being part of a big family.
