The Richmond Singers
The choir is directed by artistic director, Fabiana Katz. Fabiana has an outstanding reputation as a voice teacher and conductor, she brings with her the ability to guide singers in finding their voices, as well as her skill in directing a women's choir that is known for vocal and musical integrity. Known in both the classical and contemporary music communities as an outstanding performer, conductor and voice teacher, Fabiana brings many years of formal music studies, as well as many years of performing experience to her role as leader of the Richmond Singers. The Richmond Singers is an auditioned women's choir.
The Richmond Singers is also known for the outstanding musicians that accompany the choir. Elizabeth Oh accompanies the choir on piano, and the choir is honoured to work with Steve Johnson on bass, Chris Haas on drums and percussion and many other great guest musicians.
The Richmond Singers Ensemble
For 20 years The Richmond Singers Ensemble has answered the need for a small choral group to perform in venues not suitable for the larger choir. They select their own repertoire, rehearse independently, and enthusiastically take their lively interactive programs to retirement homes, adult care centres and other community events. Averaging more than 30 performances a year, they have become widely appreciated for bringing the joy of music to their listeners. The Ensemble practices on Wednesday mornings at the Richmond-Sea Island United Church, 8711 Cambie Road in Richmond.
