Our Mission

The Vancouver Men’s Chorus is a TTBB performing group dedicated to advancing quality choral art. Founded by gay men and their friends, we champion communities of diverse ages, ethnicities, genders and sexual orientations.


Our Vision

Creating music with our own unique brand of flavour and flair while building upon the legacy of choral excellence.


Our Values

Through our work we create respectful, affirming, intergenerational connections. We build inclusion and foster the growth of this chosen family. The VMC is also committed to our broader community with a focus on volunteer work, outreach, and giving back to allied partner organizations.

We are a community choir that strives for professionalism in what we do: in the products we deliver and in our interactions with each other and our community.

We listen and respond to our membership and audience’s evolving needs and apply
innovative, inclusive solutions.

We take on challenging repertoire, commission new works, champion new artists, accept risks, question the status quo, and are not afraid to stand up for what is right.

We value and respect all voices and opinions and operate on a principle of mutual respect for each other—we are stronger than the sum of our parts.

We rely on the support and generosity of our membership; we believe that you get
more when you give back.

We have fun!
