Victoria Choral Society

The Victoria Choral Society, directed by Brian Wismath, is a 120-member, auditioned, mixed-voice symphonic chorus. It is dedicated to presenting the finest choral music from baroque to contemporary the Victoria Choral Society and has been an integral part of the Victoria musical community for the last 81 years.

Each year we delight Victoria audiences with concerts that feature not only favorite classical choral works, but also new composers and fresh compositions. Each season we hire vocalists, instrumentalists and other musical artists from the Victoria area, and we are committed to providing appropriate opportunities to promising emerging artists studying in Victoria.

In 2013 we launched the High School Choral Immersion Program, a program that provides young singers aged 14-18 a unique opportunity to prepare and perform master choral works with a large symphonic choir, professional orchestra and soloists. Participants receive a financial award of up to $500 per season ($250 per session), mentorship from the Music Director and free music lessons, tailored to individual needs, from a qualified instructor. In addition, the society covers each participant's membership fee and rental of music scores.

By supporting the Victoria Choral Society, you are supporting and strengthening the impact of choral music in the community today and for future generations.
