Our first priority is the care of our choristers, our staff, and our membership. Therefore, we have cancelled our upcoming performances until the British Columbia Government deems it is safe to hold events again.
Classical Christmas Concerts | Victoria, Nanaimo
It was an especially bright holiday season of festive music and feelings when our eighty talented singers performed yuletide songs from around the world. In 2015 the Concert featured the beautiful, rare music that fills people with warmth and joy during long Scandinavian winters. The Choir was thrilled to be joined by special guests from Denmark – The Irene Becker Trio – and to perform the exclusive Canadian premiere of “In the Star, Sparkling in Darkness”! The stunning new composition highlights the time of Advent and the Winter Solstice.
