Event Description

The Vancouver Men's Chorus, conducted by Willi Zwozdesky, returns to Victoria after a two year absence. Canada’s Premier Gay Men’s Chorus will perform music from their 38 year repertoire as well as highlights from Making Spirits Bright 2019.

In 1981, the San Francisco Gay Men’s Chorus (the first gay choir), toured the United States and several men from Vancouver drove the three hours south to Seattle to hear them. On their return, they decided to start a chorus of their own performing their first concert in December of that same year. The Vancouver Men's Chorus officially became the first gay chorus in Canada, a founding member of GALA and the first international gay chorus in that organization.
Under the continuing direction of conductor Willi Zwozdesky, the chorus has achieved national prominence through performances across Canada including visits to Ottawa, Toronto, Calgary, Victoria, Edmonton, St. John's and Montreal, and through radio broadcasts on CBC.
Concert performances in the United States include San Francisco, Minneapolis, Seattle, Portland, Washington D.C., Denver, San Diego, and San Jose.
In addition, broadcasts of its 1995 recording Making Spirits Bright, the 1992 recording Signature and the 2006 release of Encore have increased national exposure.
