the Island Consort Chamber Choir

“…to perform choral music and to engage audiences in the enjoyment of choral repertoire..”

The Island Consort Chamber Choir  is a 20-voice community chamber choir in Nanaimo, BC that first appeared in concert in late April 2007. Repertoire is performed mostly a cappella but with occasional keyboard or strings accompaniment.

The choir produces two programs per year in Nanaimo, typically in late November and in mid-April. Past performances have also been in the mid-Island communities of Qualicum Beach, Parksville, Chemainus, Ladysmith and Gabriola Island. Programming retains the emphasis on Early Music (Byrd, Tallis, Weelkes, Palestrina, Monteverdi, Bach, etc.) but also expands to include Classical, Romantic and 20th Century/contemporary works (Schubert, Pearsall, Rheinberger, Kodaly, Tormis, Whitacre, etc.). The choir entered the National Choral Competition for the first time in the spring of 2013. Island Consort has performed three times at the Port Theatre – with the Nanaimo Chamber Orchestra, with the Vancouver-based professional dance ensemble, “Dancers Dancing”, providing on-stage vocal accompaniment, and with the Vancouver Island Symphony’s presentation of Mozart’s Requiem.

More information about past music selection can be found on our Repertoire page.
