Vancouver Chamber Choir

2018/19 Early Bird Subscription Form now available

Ten times a year the master musicians of the Vancouver Chamber Choir create a world of beauty and meaning just for you and others like you… the Vancouver Chamber Choir audience. We bring the whole range of vocal expression to you – from the majesty of choir and orchestra to the multi-hued palette of unaccompanied voices – from the masterpieces of the greatest composers to the excitement of the latest premiere – from song to motet to oratorio and even opera.

Special Message from Jon Washburn

Dear concert-goers and Vancouver Chamber Choir supporters,

2018-2019 is going to be an unusually exciting season as many changes are afoot with the Vancouver Chamber Choir.

The first part of the season will be focused on presenting the last four of our seven candidates for the position of Artistic Director. John William Trotter, Timothy Shantz and Michael Zaugg will have completed their audition concerts already.

The rest of the season will see my transition from Artistic Director to Conductor Emeritus. It will include several probable “lasts” — my last Focus! concert, Handel’s Messiah, National Conductors’ Symposium concert, Canadian tour, Good Friday in the Orpheum and Youth & Music concert and competition.

Another element in flux is that our long-time concert home, Dunbar Ryerson United Church, will be closing after Christmas for an 18-month major renovation. We will be performing at Shaughnessy Heights United Church starting in January 2019.

And, of course, this is just the Early Bird brochure, intended for our most loyal subscribers — and newcomers looking for the best possible deal on tickets. The main brochure will be out mid-summer, with a full description of each concert, the repertoire and all the performers. Meanwhile, if you just trust us to deliver another year of scintillating choral experience, sign up now and rest comfortably that your favourite seats are reserved. Choose your most convenient combination of concerts… or go for all of them! Then we’ll be seeing you in the fall.

Jon Washburn, Artistic and Executive Director
