Vancouver Chamber Choir Tours BC, Alberta and Saskatchewan

In March 2010 the internationally acclaimed Vancouver Chamber Choir will visit British Columbia, Alberta and Saskatchewan on their 79th tour “On the Road Again”. This tour follows the Choir's incredibly successful tour to Taiwan and Japan where they were invited to sing a private performance for the Emperor and Empress of Japan.
Featuring Canadian and international composers, the March tour programme has the season’s greatest variety of music for a cappella fans, providing a kaleidoscope of choral styles, moods and flavours.

The Vancouver Chamber Choir will perform:

  • March 3 & 4  - Vernon, BC, Vernon & District Performing Arts  Centre
  • March 5 – Oliver, BC, Frank Venables Auditorium
  • March 6 – Creston, BC, Prince Charles Auditorium
  • March 7 – Nelson, BC, Capitol Theatre
  • March 9 – Edmonton, AB, First Presbyterian Church
  • March 11 – Regina, SK, Christ Lutheran Church
  • March 14 – Calgary, AB, Christ Church Elbow Park
Tickets are available in advance and at the door for all performances.

The Vancouver Chamber Choir appreciates the generous support of the Canada Council for the Arts. The BC component of the tour is presented in part with the assistance of the Windsor Plywood Spectacular Music BC concert series, a project of MusicFest Vancouver.
