The Victoria Arion Male Choir is one of the newest choirs in Victoria, BC. In the summer of 2018 the Arion Male Voice Choir and the Victoria Male Voice Choir chose to unite into a new choir. The two choirs came to the realization that they could better fulfill their dreams of being “a community of men singing for health and joy” as one group rather than two. It is an exciting new venture which is already proving to be a great success both musically and organizationally.
The Victoria Arion Male Choir was formed in 2018 after the Arion Male Voice Choir founded in 1892 and the Victoria Male Voice Choir with roots back to 1908 decided to merge. The two choirs came to the realization that they could better fulfill their dreams of being “a community of men singing for health and joy” as one group rather than two. It is an exciting new venture which is already proving to be a great success both musically and organizationally.
We are currently under the music direction of Sean Lampard-Quicke who joined us for the 2020-2021 season and our accompanist Jennifer Mitchell. The choir before Covid 19 usually did two community concerts and a number of care home concerts. Currently we are holding practices on Zoom with the hope to do a concert virtually that can be sent to the senior homes. The choir in the new year would like to be able to practice and perform concerts in person.
Our repertoire embraces a wide range of musical styles including spirituals, classical, Broadway, folk, rock and pop. We are an amateur non-audition choir that offers participation and training in vocal arts. The choir also supports choral scholars.
The Victoria Arion Male Choir ( Society) is the not-for profit organization (with Registered Charity Status) that oversees the Victoria Arion Male Choir. We invite you to join our other supporters and build a connection with our choir and audience as a sponsor or donor.
