Malaspina Choir Turns 50 this year!

This season Malaspina Choir celebrates its 50th year of presenting outstanding concerts from the choral repertoire.   We have presented two of our three concerts this season on November 17th and December 13 and we are now preparing for our gala 50th anniversary concert on May 2, 2020. Our programming is vintage Malaspina Choir, reflecting the full range of the choral repertoire including works composed in the 18th century up to today. We will also be welcoming our friends from the Nanaimo music community who join us in these performances. More information will be posted here over the next several weeks.

Join the Choir

We welcome all singers and invite you to join, especially if it's something you've been meaning to do for some time. Winter rehearsals started January 7th, followed by a snow break on January 14, 2020. There's still time to join us for the balance of this term -  rehearsals are at 7 p.m. in the choral room of Bldg. 320 on the VIU campus.  If you are a former member of Malaspina Choir, we'd like to see you back for our 50th anniversary.  You can join for the term or you can join us for two rehearsals in April to be part of the performance  or you can just join your old friends at the concert on May 2. Visit the 50th Anniversary: Alumni Information page for more information.

Support the Choir  

The Malaspina Choir is a registered charity. Charitable donations help us reduce our membership fees and keep our concert ticket prices low even when we present concerts with professional soloists and musicians. In addition to the general fund that supports the choir and its activities, you may donate to the Member Bursary fund directed toward singers needing assistance with choir fees and for choral development activities. You can make your donations to the choir  through Canada Helps.
