The Vancouver Chamber Choir on Tour

Since 1974 touring has been a vital component of the Vancouver Chamber Choir’s activities. As well as performing a full series of subscription concerts in Vancouver, annual tours are undertaken to various parts of Canada. As a cultural ambassador for Canada, the Choir has travelled throughout Asia (notably China, Hong Kong, Taiwan, South Korea, and Japan), Europe (notably Germany, France, the Czech Republic, Finland, Estonia, Lithuania, Latvia, Ukraine, and Russia), the United States and Mexico.

In 1994 the Choir performed in South Korea and Japan, where they were awarded gold medals and the overall Grand Prize in the 11th Takarazuka International Chamber Chorus Competition. During the summer of 1997, the Choir completed a highly successful tour of Germany, France and the Czech Republic. In March 1999 they were featured guests at the National Convention of the American Choral Directors Association, where they performed to an audience of 6,000 of their peers. During the 2002-2003 concert season, the Choir performed in Latin America's most prestigious festival, Festival Cervantino in Guanajuato, Mexico, and in the 2002 Taipei International Choral Festival. In 2004, the Choir received an invitation to participate in the Tokyo International Performing Arts Festival.

Educational programs are also an important element of these tours. These programs include masterclasses for conductors, workshops for choirs, school concerts, and reading sessions for choral composers.
