April '08 Reunion
In 2008, the UVic Chamber Singers celebrated their 35th anniversary under the baton of Bruce More on the occasion of his retirement. Events during his last season included an April 26 (2008) reunion of many of the over 400 singers from past years, followed by a 3 week cross-Canada concert tour. In addition to their four concerts per year in Victoria, since 1987 they have featured world-wide concert tours. They have sung to enthusiastic audiences and critical acclaim in 140 cities in 40 countries of Eastern and Western Europe, the Orient, Africa and the South Pacific in addition to Canada and the US. Specializing in the works of Canadian composers, they routinely perform sacred and secular music from all eras, having a repertoire of more than 700 works since their beginnings in 1969. The Chamber Singers have received awards from the C.B.C. choral competition and in 2000 were invited to represent B.C. in the Juno Award-winning performance of R. Murray Schafer’s “Credo”. They have also recorded for broadcast on the C.B.C., University of California Radio, N.C.R.V. Radio in Holland and the national radios of Poland, Hungary, Romania & China.
