The Choir:
Victoria’s The Choir is a non-auditioned, community choir that sings all-original arrangements of pop, folk and indie music. What started as a small project based out of Larsen Music in early 2013 turned big in no time: 100 great people who love to sing their hearts out! The Choir has had a string of very fun and successful concerts, plus performances at Rifflandia 2014 and 2015 and the 2015 Campbell Bay Music Festival. They've taken the stage with Adam Cohen, Pharis and Jason Romero, Toronto's Choir!Choir!Choir!, Aidan Knight, Sara Marreiros and more. The Choir was originated as a creative endeavour by first director, Victoria's Anne Schaefer.

Kathryn Calder:
It’s easy to forget that Kathryn Calder is a music industry veteran. From her first band Immaculate Machines, to the New Pornographers and her solo works Kathryn has released 10 albums over the last 10 years, toured around the world, and solidified herself a career in music before she was thirty. Her latest release titled Kathryn Calder is a collection striving to be both vulnerable and timeless, the album ranges from the get up and move of “Take a Little Time” and “Only Armour” to the delicateness of “Song and Cm” and “Arm and Arm”. Featuring guest vocals from Dan Mangan, Jill Barber, and Hannah Georgas, Kathryn Calder demonstrates Kathryn’s limitless creative potential as she transitions from a songwriter reacting to the world to one who can capture her own moments and create one.

Kathyrn lost her mother to ALS, and her story is told in the upcoming documentary film A Matter of Time.
