We’re folks from Victoria, BC who sing original arrangements of pop, folk and indie music.

Before we were three ensembles (The Choir, The Chorus and the Mini-Choir), we were a motley group of people who gathered in local music shop to sing well-known songs for fun. (Still our first love.)

In those early days, we had no idea that so many of our friends and neighbours were eager to belt out a song! Today, our group has multiplied in size, notoriety, and music-making activities. Collectively, our non-auditioned ensembles, “The Choirs YYJ,” includes over 200 people of all ages, genders, experiences, vocal abilities and musical tastes.

And a group of 18 of our current singers form a special, auditioned ensemble – the Mini-Choir (learning a few more challenging songs each session).

In addition to hosting two annual concerts The Choirs are regular guest artists at performances on Vancouver Island, including: Rifflandia (2014-2018), Islands Folk Festival, and Campbell Bay Music Festival. We’re big on collaboration!

Our singers have shared the stage with Kirsten Ludwig, Half Moon Shine, Fox Glove, Vox Humana Chamber Choir, Kathryn Calder, Pharis and Jason Romero, Choir!Choir Choir!, Aidan Knight and more wonderful artists.

The Choirs are directed by Marc Jenkins and accompanied by Erin Gray.
