Vancouver, BC:  

This year marks the 90th Anniversary Season of the Vancouver Bach Choir. Though it’s shaped up to be one that we couldn’t have imagined in our wildest dreams, we want to come together (virtually) and celebrate the beauty, comfort, and joy of music. Indeed, we feel music is the balm we collectively need during these trying times. 

With the safety of our singers, staff and audiences in mind, the Vancouver Bach Choir has developed a fully digital season of concert experiences, launching with the perennial holiday favourite: the Singalong Messiah. It’s a new take on a holiday tradition! Join the VBC on December 8th for a special free, livestreamed event. You can join along from home to sing your favourite choruses from this holiday choral sensation. 

We simply cannot imagine a holiday season without our annual concert: Christmas with the Bach Choir. A fully digital event where you’ll be able to hear each of our choirs sing some of their holiday favourites and you’ll even get the chance to sing along from home to well-loved carols. This digital concert experience will be available online as of December 22. 

On March 26, we continue with another VBC tradition with our digital presentation of Behind the Keys. This concert typically sells out every year, so we are delighted to offer it in a virtual setting, where the more the merrier! From the comfort of your home, be entertained by VBC Music Director Leslie Dala on piano with special guest, mezzo-soprano Krisztina Szabo. Together the two will delight you with an evening of solo and duo music, recorded in the Orpheum Annex.

We’ll close our 2021 season in June with SummerSing, a final virtual performance from all eight of our choirs in a celebration of choral joy. 

Access to any one of the Christmas with the Bach Choir, Behind the Keys, and SummerSing concerts can be bought for $5, $10, $15 or $20, whatever feels right for you. We understand that we are in challenging times, and that finances may be short. We also appreciate your continued commitment to the arts, and your generous support is much appreciated. 

Consider buying a subscription. A $50 subscription ticket will grant you access to all three concerts in our Virtual Season Offering: Christmas with the Bach Choir, Behind the Keys, and SummerSing.
