The "Greater Vancouver Vivaldi Chamber Choir Society" is delighted to be presenting their 28th Season of concerts in the Greater Vancouver region and the second season under Artistic Director Edette Gagné. Our 2016-17 plans begin in December with a seasonally appropriate presentation that works its way from popular and Hollywood inspired songs to Carols, medieval to modern and well known Wassails from the choir's repertoire, while the finale in June 2017, celebrates the fact that Confederation will be 150 years young. The March concert represents our "big bang" with full orchestra and guest soloists in music by Sir Arthur Sullivan - some of it plotted and scripted with the assistance of Sir William Schwenck Gilbert.

Home for Christmas - Music for the Hearth & Soul

Join us for a wonderful collection of music to warm the heart and hearth. From traditional Wassails to jazz favourites like “Have Yourself a Merry Little Christmas”, there will be something for everyone, including some very special Hebrew music bringing messages of peace, strength and hope to us all.More ...
