The "Greater Vancouver Vivaldi Chamber Choir Society" is delighted to be presenting their 30th Season of concerts in the Greater Vancouver region and the third season under Artistic Director Edette Gagné. We launch the 2017-18 season of concerts at the end of November with a visit to Highlands United in North Vancouver while we bring the same program to St. Helen's in Vancouver at the beginning of December. March sees us offer a program of music about, and dedicated to, "Love" at both St. Andrew's in Langley and St. Helen's. Our 30th Anniversary Concert at the beginning of June, which celebrates the music of Antonio Vivaldi will be accompanied by Chamber Orchestra with well-known Vancouver voices as guest soloists.

A Ceremony of Carols

An evening of music that touches the heart and the mind. We all know the pull that familiar carols have on our hearts! Our choir is taking that one step further, with the addition of a counter tenor soloist and the magical sounds of a harp. Benjamin Britten's iconic work for Christmas was originally composed for all treble voices - we will be bringing you the mixed voice setting, which feels so different and so satisfying. Add to that the lush, Post-Romantic offerings from Gustav Holst and Anton Bruckner, and you have the makings of something wondrous. More ...

Our audience & friends are invited to join us for hot cider and cookies after the concert - stay for treats and conversation!
