THE VICTORIA CHILDREN’S CHOIR
The Victoria Children’s Choir enables youth throughout Greater Victoria to master their vocal talents and enrich their music knowledge. Choristers (ages seven to eighteen) study an array of contemporary and classical songs from around the world, and learn to sing extraordinarily challenging pieces as part of their academic appreciation for choral music.
For 17 seasons, choristers have been under the instruction of Founder and Artistic Director, Madeleine Humer, and an expert music team. As a testament to their reputation and skill, the Choir is regularly invited to collaborate with renowned international and local musicians, including the Victoria Symphony, Pacific Opera Victoria, Fretwork and the Pacific Baroque Festival.
The choir has been honored to sing at many celebrated events, including: the 2010 Olympic Flame Welcome and Torch Relay ceremonies, the 2011 Summa cum Laude International Youth Music Festival in Vienna, Austria (first-place award, Treble category), the 70th anniversary of the Liberation of the Netherlands in 2015 and most recently at the official welcome ceremony for the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge. In July 2017 the Concert Choir did a two-week Sea-to-Sea Tour through the Maritime Provinces to celebrate Canada’s 150th Birthday.
