About the UVic Chamber Singers
This mixed ensemble performs both standard and lesser-known choral repertoire from a wide spectrum of composers and styles. Performing with the highest level of musicianship, choir members have extensive choral experience, strong sight-reading skills and a thirst for exploring and sharing their musical expertise.

Since 1973 under the direction of Bruce More, the choir built a reputation for highly acclaimed performances in Victoria and also extensive concert tours. They performed in 140 cities and 30 countries on 6 continents. They 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. (Chamber Singers Archive, 1973–2010)

The UVic Chamber Singers perform two concerts per semester. The fall performance includes participation in the all-UVic Choirs Seasonal Christmas Concert at Christ Church Cathedral.
