UVic Chamber Singers: 50th Anniversary Concert

Adam Con, director
With guest Bruce More conducting the Chamber Singers Alumni Choir

For 50 years now, the UVic Chamber Singers have proven to be one of the most endearing — and enduring — School of Music ensembles. The UVic Chamber Singers has performed to enthusiastic audiences in 140 cities and 30 countries on 6 continents and have recorded for broadcast on the CBC, University of California Radio, N.C.R.V. Radio in Holland and the National Radios of China, Poland & Hungary. They have also been winners in the CBC choral competition and took part in a recording in 2000 that won a Juno Award.

Bruce More was the ensemble’s longest-standing conductor. While Bruce retired in 2008, he continues to host alumni reunions and foster connections that strengthen the long and prestigious history of the Chamber Singers. Bruce will conduct a special Alumni Choir in singing Healey Willan’s “Rise Up, My Love, My Fair One,” in celebration of the 50th anniversary of the choir.

Support the UVic Chamber Singers through the Bruce More Legacy Fund.
