HOW IT WORKS
YVR POP CHOIR and B-ROLL are our performance choirs and they are the heart of our community. 140 members strong (pre-COVID19), 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.
PLEASE NOTE: Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, all rehearsals and performances will be held online to protect the health and safety of our staff and choir members.
YVR POP CHOIR sings pop, indie and R&B music on Monday nights.
B-ROLL rehearses on Tuesday nights and sings R&B, hip-hop and gospel. No matter which genres of music you prefer to sing, you will find that both choirs are bursting with soul and flavour.
YVR POP CHOIR and B-ROLL collectively have 140 singers who are also teachers, lawyers, students, actors, business owners, contractors, nurses and even a firefighter. Our youngest member is 14 years old; our eldest is 70. Predominantly, we are a choir of 25 to 45 year olds.
We welcome people from all of the diverse communities in our beautiful city, including our thriving LGBTQ+ community.
We sing current pop, indie, R&B, hip hop and gospel songs. Nearly all of our repertoire is arranged by director Rebecca Lam.
