National and International Tours
Every two to three years, our Bella Voce choir members (grades 8 to 12) are given the opportunity to participate in a tour. Going on national and international tours gives our choristers:
- Exceptional performance opportunities,
- Life-changing multicultural experiences, and
- Confidence and independence.
The British Columbia Girls Choir has toured North and Central America: within Canada, and to the United States and Costa Rica.
Overseas, we have performed in Australia, China, Scotland, England, Ireland, Wales, Germany, Croatia, Slovenia, Austria and Italy.
The tour in the summer of 2020 was to have been to the International Choral Kathaumixw, Powell River, British Columbia. This is a week-long gathering of choirs from around the world. The last time we sang at Kathaumixw was in 2008. After 12 years, we were honoured to have been chosen to particpate again. Unfortunately, Kathaumixw was cancelled due to the Covid-19 Pandemic. We anticipate our next tour will be in the summer of 2021.
