As well as a concert series in the Greater Vancouver the choir will present programs at out of town locations from time to time.

We also make outreach one of our priorities and each Christmas we have entertained residents of care homes and patients in hospitals. We also enjoy appearing and at VanDusen Gardens' Festival of Lights. We have occasionally sung at weddings and once at a memorial service..

Touring History

In past years, concerts have also been presented outside the Greater Vancouver area, including two concert tours to Vancouver Island (with concerts in Victoria, Oak Bay, Nanaimo, Cortes Island, Comox, and Port Hardy), concerts in Gibsons and Ganges on Saltspring Island, and two concert tours to the BC interior. In one of the interior tours, concerts were held in Kamloops, Merritt, and Abbotsford, and in the other tour, six concerts were presented in seven days in Kelowna, Salmon Arm, Grand Forks, Castlegar, Creston, and Nelson. The Vivaldi Chamber Choir has also made three foreign concert tours, two to Mexico in 1992 and 1994, and one to the Czech Republic in 1998.

For our foreign tours, those members who could afford it also made donations for their own airfare and for a fund to subsidize the airfare of those members who could not afford to pay their own.
