The choir has openings in all sections, but especially in soprano 1, alto 1, tenors and basses. Candidates must have choral singing experience, and good sightreading/sightsinging skills are an asset. Rehearsals are on Monday evenings, Sept through early June. To arrange for a short audition with the Artistic Director, please contact Mary at email@example.com

We are a friendly, auditioned chamber choir of 25 - 30 people from many different backgrounds. We sing music from medieval to modern in a variety of languages, and often include compositions or arrangements by local composers. Our season runs from September to the beginning of June and includes 3 main concerts. We also engage in outreach ventures and occasional tours.
Rehearsals are at Redeemer Lutheran Church at 1499 Laurier Ave. (Laurier and Granville) in Vancouver. We rehearse on Monday nights from 7:30 to 9:45 p.m.

As you’ll likely be aware, the BC Government has made severe cuts in the grants given to cultural and arts organisations across the Province. This, coupled with the recession, make it very hard for small grant-funded choirs like ourselves to sustain our choir and community.
Here are some reasons to support the Vivaldi Choir:-
- As a community choir, Vivaldi gives amateur singers from all over Vancouver the chance to pursue their passion at a good standard. ·
- Lead by local composer David Millard, the choir regularly performs the works of BC and Canadian composers – revealing music to the public that might not otherwise be heard. ·
- By featuring young upcoming soloists and musicians in our concerts, Vivaldi acts as a Springboard for them to go pro by increasing their exposure and experience. ·
- We, in turn, support the Vancouver community by performing for free at locations such as the George Pearson Centre for the Disabled.
