2020 Choirs

British Columbia Girls' Choir - Metro Vancouver, Canada

 

The BC Girls' Choir offers training from ages six to eighteen. The girls have made appearances with such artists as the Vancouver Chamber Choir, The Tenors and opera superstar Ben Heppner. The choir is strongly committed to supporting Canadian choral music. It has been fortunate to perform the works of Canadian composers in Australia, China, America, Costa Rica, and much of Europe. A recent highlight came at the 2018 Llangollen International Musical Eisteddfod in Wales, where the girls were awarded the ‘Children’s Choir of the World’ trophy. Sharing the joy of choral music, meeting new friends from around the world, and singing to make a change in the girls’ own communities – this is what the BC Girls’ Choir loves to do.
