Malaspina Choir has been delighting Nanaimo audiences for more than 50 years, and we plan to continue contributing to the city’s vibrant cultural scene for many years to come. In that spirit, we have developed our plans for the 2020-2021 season to keep our choir singing and performing while honouring the constraints imposed by the current pandemic.  Please read on about our fall plans, being aware that anything can change depending on the current state of the pandemic and research about singing. We will also post updates on our Facebook page as well as links to resources to help keep you singing. The voice is our first instrument; no virus will stop us from making music with it!

Joining the Choir in Fall, 2020

We welcome all singers to become voting members of the choir for a nominal membership fee whether or not you wish to actively participate. Members who also want to participate in rehearsals, workshops and performances will need to pay an activity fee for face-to-face and virtual work. Unfortunately, we will not be able to offer the choir as a course option for VIU students this fall due to COVID shut-downs. Please Visit Join the Choir for more information about our plans and for a choir registration form.

New Rehearsal Venue

We will be rehearsing Tuesday evenings at St. Andrew's United Church, 311 Fitzwilliam Street, Nanaimo. 

 Support the Choir  

The Malaspina Choir is a registered charity and issues receipts for donations. Charitable donations will help us through these difficult times when we have lost our concert revenue. You can make your donations to the choir through Canada Helps.
