Welcome to our Winter/Spring season

After a successful Fall program consisting of Bach's Magnificat and sing-along Messiah, the Choir is proud to present Verdi's Massa de Requiem, a Catholic funerlal mass composed in 1874 for Alessandro Manzoni, a writer/poet much admired by Verdi. We will be performing the Requiem in St Peter's Church in Nanaimo.


Support the Choir  

The Malaspina Choir sponsors an endowment fund which provides a bursary for a VIU Student enrolled in the Choral music program. The initial investment was made with a donation to the Choir by Andrew Stephens in memory of his deceased wife, Margaret Stephens.  Please donate to support this generous gesture in assisting the development of younger singers.
