PACIFIC EDGE CHORUS sings a cappella four-part harmony, performing in the community and competing annually in western Canada. Our repertoire includes popular songs by Adele, Bruno Mars, Coldplay, Neil Diamond, Irving Berlin, Lennon & McCartney, Simon & Garfunkel, Train....to name a few. Our goal is to continually strive for excellence through education and performance.

We invite women and teens to explore their potential for growth through singing and performing in our fun, friendly and committed group. We currently have about 45 singers and are looking to grow our membership. Come visit and try us out!

In November 2014, as the City of Gardens Chorus, we were awarded gold medals by Sweet Adelines International judges in the Harmony Classic Division AA category for mid-sized choruses, which was limited to the top five choruses world-wide. The Chorus’ 48 female singers performed a colourful Mardi Gras entertainment package. Master Director Julie Smith and Assistant Director Diane Butler directed the Chorus. Here's a link to that exciting gold medal performance: http://tinyurl.com/k5yr4fz

The Chorus has been entertaining and competing since chartering with Sweet Adelines International in 1967. Members from all over Greater Victoria and as far as Parksville travel to Tuesday evening rehearsals at Gordon United Church hall, 935 Goldstream Avenue.

The Chorus’ performances showcase our exciting modern art form of four-part, a cappella close-harmony singing, with ringing chords, stunning choreography and dazzling costumes. We sing special arrangements of today’s ballads and upbeat songs, popular show tunes, and even jazz.

Invitations to strut our award-winning talents are always welcome. We sing at local events and festivals and have donated many performances to benefit charitable organizations. The Chorus has performed for a Governor General, three Lieutenant Governors, and at events honouring the Canadian Naval Centennial. In 2010 the Chorus toured England and Wales, earning third place at the Llangollen International Musical Eisteddfod.

TESTIMONIAL:
The Chorus performed at a private Canadian Naval Centennial event in Victoria and had the Governor General of Canada, Lieutenant-Governor of British Columbia, and invited dignitaries on their feet and clapping.
