[posted Feb 5th, 2023 8:51 pm]

Choralation is now auditioning for our Tenor and Bass sections. Our repertoire includes all genres including folk, pop, classical, jazz, and more. As some of our selections can be challenging, strong music reading ability is highly recommended.

Choralation is free to join, and our regular performances are held as fundraisers to support local music charities. We are an inclusive, welcoming, and enthusiastic group who love to sing and share music with others.

We rehearse every Tuesday evening in various locations in Vancouver, Burnaby and Port Coquitlam.

Whether it be finding new ways to entertain yourself at home, not being able to visit loved ones at home, or making your home your workplace, 2020 has changed the concept of 'home' for many of us.
