Join the Choir

There are two ways to become a member of The Victoria Good News Choir Society. The first is the requirement of ‘wanting to sing’. If you can read music, you‘re welcome to join the choir. If you’ve never read a note of music in your whole life, you’re just as welcome.

After making the decision to join the choir there is a second requirement. It is payment of the choir’s annual fees. The fees are set by the choir’s Board. Payment arrangements can almost always be made if you just let someone know.

The choir is NOT:
- a religious group
- affiliated with a particular sect or denomination
- a gospel choir

The choir’s mission statement says simply ‘The Victoria Good News Choir Society is a choir inspired by community interest, enthusiasm and the sheer joy of singing together. It is a living process guided by an energy and a wholeness of its own, where ALL are welcome.’

We offer:
The opportunity for anyone who wants to sing to do so without having to audition

The opportunity to sing a varied repertoire and perform in different environments

A place where individuals are respected for the gifts they bring

A place to learn, serve and grow

Rehearsals are held at 7:30 PM each Tuesday from mid-September to June at Cordova Bay United Church, 813 Claremont Avenue.
