The richmond singers
Women Who Love to Sing!
Our purpose is to sing, in harmony, a variety of music for the enjoyment of the members as well as to give public and private performances for the listening pleasure of others.
The Richmond Singers is a 55 voice women’s choir which began performing in 1971. Our purpose is "to sing, in harmony, a variety of music for the enjoyment of the members as well as to give public and private performances for the listening pleasure of others". During our musical season (September - June), the choir practices on Monday evenings from 7 - 9:30 PM at Broadmoor Baptist Church in Richmond. In addition to our weekly practices we usually plan one or two workshops with a choral clinician, as well as evenings with guest directors.
Our choir has three major performances per year; an evening Christmas concert and a Family Christmas Concert in December and a Spring Concert in May. The Richmond Singers have performed in shopping malls, at City Hall, South Arm Fall Fair, the airport and senior centres.
We are very involved with our community and, by giving benefit concerts, help to raise funds for other organizations such as the Richmond Hospice Society, Canadian Cancer Foundation and Tim Horton's Kids Camps. We were very fortunate to be invited to represent BC at the July 1, 2003 “UNISONG” celebrations in Ottawa. The choir performed five concerts which featured singing at the National Arts Center with the National Symphony Orchestra directed by the world renowned Pinchas Zukerman.
The Richmond Singers sing for our own enjoyment and continue to strive towards improving our voices, challenging ourselves with various forms of music, sometimes in foreign languages. We encourage members to attend the annual BC Choral Federation ‘Chorfest’ which provides a unique musical experience.
As a group member of the Richmond Community Arts Council, the Richmond Singers has established a legacy that attests to a vested interest in the arts in Richmond and has an exemplary track record in community service.
