The Choir and The Chorus in Concert with Guests

The Choir and The Chorus in Concert

Victoria’s The Choir and The Chorus are non-auditioned, community choirs that sing all-original arrangements of pop, folk and indie music. The Choir began as a small project based out of Larsen Music in early 2013, and grew to 100 members over the next 2 years. The Chorus launched in the fall of 2017 to meet the demand of people looking to get into The Choir.
They have enjoyed a run of successful concerts, plus performances at Rifflandia 2014 through 2018, Islands Folk Festival in 2017, and the 2015 Campbell Bay Music Festival. They've shared the stage with Kirsten Ludwig, the Half Moon Shine, Fox Glove, Vox Humana Chamber Choir, Kathryn Calder, Pharis and Jason Romero, Choir!Choir!Choir!, Aidan Knight and many more.
The Choir and The Chorus are directed by Marc Jenkins and accompanied by Erin Gray. They perform separately, and when together are affectionately known as Megachoirasorus!

The Mini-Choir is an auditioned 18-voice group directed by Marc Jenkins.

Kirsten Ludwig

Currently residing in Victoria, BC, Kirsten Ludwig has just released her full-length album with Kathryn Calder's Oscar St. Records. ‘We Get It Now’ is an infusion of dream-pop, haunt-folk, and Canadiana; with its low-key atmosphere, thoughtful arrangements, and honest sound guiding the way - garnering influences from Beach House, Laura Marling, and Sharon Van Etten.

The Half Moon Shine

The Half Moon Shine is a band of women from Victoria, BC, initially bound together by their love of sweet country harmonies. Since they formed in 2015 as a good old-fashioned all-female country band, it’s been all-hands-on-deck. Each gal is a songwriter in her own right and from the get-go they were delighted to hear and share each other’s songs and flesh them out with luscious four-part harmonies, guitar riffs, and train beats.

$5.00 - $15.00
