Malaspina Choir Turns 50 this year!
This season Malaspina Choir celebrates its 50th year of presenting outstanding concerts from the choral repertoire. You can hear us (or participate in) our three concerts this season on November 17th, December 13 and our gala 50th anniversary concert 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.

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
