HOW IT WORKS

Chorus Studio houses 4 contemporary choirs and they are the heart of our community. Our choirs have performed sold out shows at the Vancouver Theatresports Theatre, The York Theatre, The Cultch Historic Theatre and even Lincoln Center in New York City! YVR Pop Choir has been featured in marketing campaigns by major brands such as Disney, Uber and Translink.

No matter which choir you choose, you will find that all of our groups are bursting with soul and flavour. All of our choirs are illuminated by Chorus Studio's signature good vibes. Our members are supportive, encouraging, chill and playful. We actively value diversity and inclusivity.

The Chorus Studio choirs are made up of singers who are also teachers, lawyers, students, actors, business owners, contractors, health care workers and even a firefighter. Our youngest members are 16 years old; our eldest members are 70+. Predominantly, our adult choirs consist of 25 to 45 year olds.

We welcome people from all of the diverse communities in our beautiful city, including our thriving LGBTQ+ community. Our facilities are accessible to persons with disabilities. Click here to learn more about accessibility at Chorus Studio.

We sing contemporary music exclusively. No classical arias or Gregorian Chants here--although if you choose to rock one at an Open Mic, we will gleefully support you!

Song arrangements and practice tracks are available online for members to practice from home. All rehearsals are recorded so you can easily catch up if you miss a session! 

The Chorus Studio choirs perform bi-annually at minimum. These performance opportunities range from live music video shoots, flash mobs, theatre performances, corporate gigs and more. We meet all year long for weekly, 2-hour long rehearsals. Virtual options are available for members who cannot attend in-person.

The proceeds from all choir concerts are donated to charitable organizations. Since 2017, our choirs have raised over $65,000 for charities such as Action for Animals, VOKRA and the Crisis Centre of BC.

Choir memberships cost $140 per month. Registrants are asked to opt-in to auto-pay and enrolment for ease of administration on both sides. Memberships may be cancelled at any time with a minimum of 2-weeks notice. Registration priority is given to current members and alumni. New members must audition to join and may register on a first come, first served basis.

We're not your traditional church community choir! And our prices reflect that. For clarity and transparency, here's a breakdown of what your membership fees pay for:

  1. Staff wages (musical director, operations director, administrator)

  2. Studio maintenance, amenities and overheads

  3. New, original choral arrangements every term

  4. Production of practice tracks, full arrangement demos and choreography

  5. Weekly 2-hour rehearsals with possible extensions when necessary

  6. Rehearsal recordings and virtual rehearsal options

  7. Studio time for sectionals and extra practices

  8. Contractor wages (band members, masters of ceremony, sound engineers, lighting technicians, photographers, videographers)

  9. Concert venue rentals, theatre staff and box office

  10. Bookkeeping, accounting, insurance and website maintenance

Rehearsals will not be held on stat holidays. There will be no rehearsals on the first week of January, first week of September and during Christmas Holidays. During this time of your membership, our team will be focussed on producing new arrangements, choir and studio administration and maintenance and production of term end events.
