Choralation is a self-directed community acappella choir based in Vancouver, BC, Canada. Our repertoire includes all styles of a cappella music, including classical, folk, jazz, and pop songs, with several original arrangements from members of the choir.
Founded in 2008, Choralation was formed from a group of singers who wanted to pursue the enjoyment of making music without the need for any accompaniment. All our selections are sung a cappella, with just the sound of our voices.
We rehearse weekly through the year to prepare for performances in a variety of Vancouver locations. Previous performances have included fundraisers for local music charities, Christmas caroling at the Van Dusen Gardens, performances at local hospitals and retirement homes, and singing on Vancouver's downtown streets during the 2010 Winter Olympic Games.
Choralation A Cappella returned for our second year at Vancouver's Yule Duel event, held annually to raise funds for May's Place Hospice.
In addition to raising over $1700 for this wonderful charity that provides care and compassion for those in need in Vancouver's Downtown Eastside, Choralation duelled on the official Yule Duel stage to vie for the top spots!
The Vancouver Bach Choir snagged first place this year for Best Vocal Performance with Choralation A Cappella in second place. Congrats to all the choirs that were 'carolling for a cause' in this fun and festive event.
