The Choir and The Chorus in Concert with Guests
Vox Humana Chamber Choir, David P. Smith, The Mini-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, and performances at Rifflandia 2014 through 2106, and the 2015 Campbell Bay Music Festival. They’ve taken the stage with Fox Glove, Hank Pine, Adam Cohen, Kathryn Calder, Pharis and Jason Romero, Choir!Choir!Choir!, Aidan Knight and more. The Choir is directed by Marc Jenkins and accompanied by Erin Gray.
The Choir sings songs by Perfume Genius, Björk, David Bowie, Feist, The Kinks, They Might Be Giants, Radiohead, Gowan, and more!
Vox Humana Chamber Choir
Vox Humana (Latin for human voice) is the name given to the organ stop that tries to emulate certain qualities of the singing voice. It is appropriate, then, that the name was first given to our choir by an organist and choral conductor, Sarah MacDonald. Now a Fellow of Selwyn College, Cambridge, and Director of Music of the choir there, Sarah gave Vox Humana its name and its start as a project choir in Victoria in the 1990s, in the hope that someone would continue the choir once she left her native Canada. That continuation started in 2002, when Garth MacPhee, then Director of Music of the Church of Saint John the Divine, produced the first season of concerts under the name Vox Humana. From 2004-2010, the group was led by soprano and conductor Wendy McMillan, and since 2010 by its current Artistic Director, Brian Wismath.
David P. Smith
Victoria, BC songwriter David P. Smith has been writing, performing, and recording since 1995. He is essentially a storyteller, his narratives visceral, sometimes hilarious, peering into darkness, stumbling into surreality, lurching back into the everyday, and occupying that honest spot where good C&W dwells. Musically and sonically he draws on everything from the raw emotion of hard-core country and rhythm and blues, to noise, to folk, to the forms dictated or suggested or discovered on the accordion or piano.
