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 are developing our plans for the 2020-2021 season to keep our choir singing and performing while honouring the constraints imposed by the current pandemic.  In March, when public health measures meant we had to postpone our 50th Anniversary concert, we thought we would be back to normal by the fall. That clearly is not going to happen. We don’t know exactly how it will look in September, but we invite you to check back in late summer and look at our Facebook page for updates on our plans and 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

Whether it’s in person, virtual, or both; indoors or outdoors – Malaspina Choir will be there this fall. Please Visit Join the Choir for a choir registration form. Unfortunately, we will not be able to offer the choir as a course option for VIU students this fall.

 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.
