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.
Seeking Refuge: Classical Christmas Concert | December 9 | Christ Church Cathedral
This year, we put together a concert that helped to tell the Nativity story through a more modern lens of Mary, Joseph, and baby Jesus as refugees journeying in a foreign land seeking shelter and safety through the kindness of strangers. A lens that is all too real for many around the world, and even right here in Victoria.
The second half of the evening was composed of each choir taking their time to shine as they each sang songs of the season. The evening concluded with David, the Recital Choir Conductor, playing the Cathedral’s organ and everyone joining in with a couple carols.
St. Cecilia Day | November 23 | Christ Church Cathedral
St. Cecilia is known as the patron saint of musicians. The annual all-day event is full of performances from groups from around Victoria, including yours truly, as well as the cathedral’s organists and bell-ringers. All proceeds from the day went to support music at Christ Church Cathedral.
Remembrance Day | November 11 | Royal BC Museum
On November 11, we sang to show our appreciation to the Veterans of Canada and their families, as well as to the brave servicemen and women who continually stand up to injustice, tyranny, inhumanity and hatred, and for the losses and sacrifices they have endured.
Tour de Rock | October 4 | Centennial Square
We were extremely privileged to be a part of the 2019 Cops for Cancer Tour de Rock finale in Victoria’s Centennial Square. The choir performed in front of an excited crowd ready to welcome back 20 riders from their two-week, 1,000-kilometre bike ride from Port Alice to Victoria. This year’s team of officers raised more than $1.1 million for children’s cancer care.

Ocean World | June 4 | 7:00 PM | McPherson Playhouse
This “environmental musical”—originally sponsored by the World Wildlife Fund—asks, “who cares about the ocean?”. We invite you to come and experience a musical journey that follows the wonders of the ocean. “Ocean World” also highlights serious pressures the ocean has on the lives of our underwater neighbours: whales, turtles, fish, dolphins, as well as us on land. The music perfectly reflects the beauty of this extraordinary world!
