2018: VMC in Calgary & St John’s
Unprecedented Travel Plans
Never before has the VMC had such a wonderful opportunity in the same year to travel across the country and represent our beautiful city at two of Canada’s most prestigious national choral events.
What a journey the VMC is on! Now in its 37th season, and with a solid track record of contributions to the arts communities within Canada, USA and abroad, we are so honoured to have been invited to the Choral Canada “Podium: On The Edge” festival in 2018. This puts the VMC on the national mainstage of Canadian choral music, and is a tremendous testament to the years of dedication, perseverance, and hard work that many hundreds of people have contributed to the continued success of the VMC over the years.
In addition, our attendance at the Unison LGBTQI2+ Choral Festival every 4 years is always hotly anticipated, and expected. The VMC were pioneers all those years ago back in 1981, as the first gay chorus in Canada. At Unison, we celebrate such achievements in song with our LGBTQI2+ brothers and sisters from across our great nation.
