 BC Girls Choir has recently returned from an extensive European tour to
the Netherlands, Croatia, Slovenia, Austria and Italy. The girls sang in
such venues as Salzburg Cathedral, where Mozart was baptized, and among
the stalactites and stalagmites of Postojna Cave. They appeared on
Croatian television as guests of the national morning show, sang in a
15th century castle and even in the Roman amphitheatre at Pula, Croatia.
Over the 17 day tour, the girls sang for thousands and shared their
programme of Canadian folksongs, classical pieces and even songs from
Frozen and Despicable Me 2.

Where will you sing next:  What to look forward to in the 2015-2016 season!

 Now the choir is home and accepting
new singers who would like to help answer the question - where will we
sing next? BC Girls Choir, one of our province’s best, is a vibrant,
exciting place to belong. Training starts for girls as young as six
years old and the top level can provide touring and recording
opportunities for its teenaged members.  The girls come together every Saturday from all regions of the Lower
Mainland; they develop their love for the art of singing, their talent
and poise, and a sense of team spirit in a friendly and supportive
environment.

This coming year, the
girls will sing numerous concerts throughout Metro Vancouver. They will
record for a Christmas cd, to be released late 2016, and the choir will
be guests of BC’s newest orchestra - the Sea to Sky Symphony. Other
events will include outreach concerts to benefit the Kids Helpline, the
North Shore Christmas Bureau and the Downtown Eastside Women’s Shelter.

We are also starting a brand new women's choir in September 2015 called ZEPHYRA
for women who have graduated from high school and are looking to
continue singing at a high level of artistry.  Zephyra will rehearse on
Tuesday evenings in New Westminster.

  • "My advice to young people who want to find happiness now and in the future is... sing in a choir like the BC Girls Choir. You'll find music, poetry, languages, feelings, tolerance and understanding, friendship, world cultures and history, teamwork, poise, confidence, stage presence and so much more. It will enrich your life now and for many years to come." Jon Washburn, CM

  • "I attended the concert on behalf of the BC Lupus Society. I was so impressed with the quality of the choir and of the dedication of both the choir members and the support staff. We at BC Lupus feel privileged to have the Girls Choir sing on our behalf, and want to thank your organization again for its generosity and spirit." Kathleen Mason, Secretary BC Lupus Society

  • "(I) just heard your choir's version of my song 'Frobisher Bay' on You Tube...wanted to let you know that I have heard many versions of this song...and as the composer I'm honoured by the beautiful job your group did! Bravo!" James Gordon, composer

     

     

  • "When I first came to BC Girls Choir, I was a shy, scared little girl, who was too afraid to share her voice with anyone. After six years with this amazing group, I can sing with confidence and I know I'll never forget the amazing trips and the wonderful friends that I've met along the way." Jessica Cumming, alumni singer
