***[ADDITIONAL UPDATES May 19, 2020]***
[UPDATED April 6, 2020]
Dear friends,

It is with great sadness that we must announce that the remaining activities of our 19/20 season have now been officially cancelled. No doubt this news will not come as a great surprise, but it is heartbreaking nonetheless.

Although we held out hope as long as we could, it has become clear to our staff and our Board of Directors that neither our concert on May 8 at the Chan Centre for the Performing Arts nor our annual Divertimento fundraising dinner at the end of May can proceed as planned. We know you were looking forward to these events as much as we were and share in your disappointment.

To say this has been a roller coaster year for the Vancouver Chamber Choir is an understatement – between the catastrophic flood last summer and the current global pandemic this certainly wasn’t the inaugural season we had envisioned for our new Artistic Director, Kari Turunen! Nonetheless, we persevere, and we are confident that if we all continue with the current precautions of staying home when possible, washing our hands frequently and maintaining social distance we will be able to kick off our exciting 50th anniversary season in September.

SUBSCRIBERS – we will follow up with you via email or telephone. We are incredibly grateful to the astounding number of you who have already offered to donate the value of your subscription tickets back to the choir. Thank you so very, very much!


  • March 30 (Stephen Chatman Celebration): this co-production with the Canadian Music Centre BC Region has been cancelled. All ticket holders will be contacted by the choir or by the CMC.
  • April 10 (St. John Passion): due to the overwhelming volume of transactions, Ticketmaster requires up to 30 days to automatically process refunds.
  • May 8 (This Delicate Universe): single ticket holders will be contacted directly by the Chan Centre’s box office.

Pending approval by the BC Gaming Commission, our 2020 raffle (Win a trip for two to Chicago) will be cancelled. All patrons who have purchased tickets will be contacted individually.

Thank you, again, for your words of encouragement and support during these uncertain times. Please do your best to stay safe and healthy, and we look forward to singing for you again very soon!

Steven Bélanger, Executive Director
