JOIN A CHOIR
We house 4 contemporary choirs at Chorus Studio: YVR Pop Choir, B-Roll, Pacific Soul and Youth Pop Choir! YVR Pop Choir sings pop, indie and R&B music on Monday evenings. B-Roll is Vancouver's only R&B choir that also sings some hip-hop and gospel on Tuesdays. Pacific Soul is an acoustic soul choir that rehearses on Wednesdays. Youth Pop Choir is a group for young people who are between 14 to 19 years of age. All levels are welcome in all of our choirs! Whichever choir you choose, singing with us is empowering, freeing and simply, FUN!
Our choirs are the heart of the Chorus Studio community with a distinct mission to be an inspiring, healing and uplifting space where members come together to sing and fundraise for local animal rescues. Since 2017, our choirs have raised over $60,000 for charitable organizations such as VOKRA - Vancouver Orphan Kitten Rescue, Wildlife Rescue of BC, Small Animal Rescue Society, Heart & Soul Dog & Cat Rescue and Actions for Animals. During the COVID-19 pandemic, we raised over $10,000 for the Vancouver Food Bank and the Crisis Centre of BC.
We believe there is magic to coming together with like-minded, creative people to sing and do good in the community. This magic fuels our studio, members, staff and audiences with good vibes to last us long after a choir rehearsal or concert.

It all started with YVR POP CHOIR (YPC). Founded in 2016, this adult community choir (18+) was formed out of Rebecca Lam's desire to connect her students to each other, provide more performance opportunities and contribute to local animal rescues. YPC has since been featured in press coverage in Canada and around the world, viral marketing campaigns with Disney, Uber and Translink and we've even performed in Lincoln Centre in New York City!
YVR POP CHOIR rehearses on Monday evenings and sings pop, indie and R&B music with music director Rebecca Lam. Performances are accompanied by the Chorus Studio House Band. Email us to book an audition! All levels are welcome.
B-Roll is YPC's groovy little sister! This adult community choir (18+) rehearses on Tuesday evenings and sings R&B, hip-hop and gospel music with music director Rebecca Lam. Performances are accompanied by the Chorus Studio House Band.

Pacific Soul Choir is a soulful, acoustic vocal ensemble that sings a perfect blend of Motown, 90's R&B and contemporary soul. Curated and directed by the mash-up king, Richard Pinto, this adult community choir (18+) will soothe your spirit with groovy, acoustic jams.
While all of our choirs are accessible to singers of all levels, Pacific Soul is our most beginner-friendly choir. If you are new to singing, this is your crew!

Youth Pop Choir is for singers between the ages of 14 and 19 years old. Directed by Jared Suitor, this group rehearses on Thursday evenings and sings pop, dance and soul music.
Beyond making beautiful music, we also aim to inspire young people to discover their unique voice, make space for creative self-expression, learn to work in a team towards a common goal and contribute to the community. Email us to book an audition! All levels are welcome.
