Past Performances & Treasured Moments
Ever since we were established as a non-profit performing arts organization in 2005, the Victoria Philharmonic Choir has been honoured to perform alongside soloists of international reputation, including Nancy Argenta, Donna Brown, Anne Grimm, Sarah Fryer, Benjamin Butterfield, Richard Margison, Daniel Taylor, Daniel Lichti, Gary Relyea and Nathaniel Watson.
Our orchestra players have included members of the Victoria Symphony, the Victoria Baroque Players, the Naden Band of the Royal Canadian Navy and the Montreal-based sackbut and cornet ensemble, La Rose des Vents.
Here are a few highlights from our past seasons:
We delight in sharing our passion for music with our community in Victoria, BC, Canada. We perform a wide range of choral music, from big baroque works to Medieval Church Music and offer our community Christmas sing-along concerts, choral workshops and more. Here are a few images of previous concerts in churches and concert halls, and practice “note bashing” sessions:
