What we're about

Do you love to sing? Westcoast Harmony Chorus in Surrey, BC, may be the place for you!

We are a chorus of women and marginalized genders, and we love to sing a cappella, mainly in the barbershop style. Even in this time of uncertainty, we are meeting VIRTUALLY each Wednesday evening, to learn new, challenging repertoire, from traditional barbershop to contemporary pop and rock arrangements.

Our weekly rehearsals are led by Master Director Anne Downton, the baritone of Frenzy Quartet, 2017 International Quartet Champions! Every rehearsal is guaranteed to be fun, energetic, and a high-level group vocal lesson!

We are a member of Sweet Adelines International. In October 2018, we placed 13th in the world at the international competition in St. Louis, Missouri. In April 2019, we won first place at the Region 26 Chorus Competition in Surrey. This win entitles us to compete in the next International competition against the top choruses from around the world.

To learn more about us, email us at membership@westcoastsings.com. Come to a Wednesday night virtual rehearsal, or check us out at www.westcoastsings.com (http://www.westcoastsings.com/) ( http://www.westcoastsings.com/ ) and on Facebook ( https://www.facebook.com/WestcoastHarmonyChorus/ ). Currently, our rehearsals are VIRTUAL, and we meet every Wednesday night from 7:15-10pm on Zoom. Remember: what happens at a Westcoast rehearsal ... should happen to YOU!

Update: Westcoast Harmony Chorus is still rehearsing…VIRTUALLY! Each week, we meet over Zoom to learn new music, new skills, and connect with like-minded musicians from around the lower mainland. Because of the new format of these virtual rehearsals, this is an unprecedented time for new and seasoned members to learn new skills, and really hone their voice as an instrument! Each rehearsal is likened to a music school – there’s singing, there’s laughing, and there’s tons of education! Westcoast Harmony Chorus is looking for women and marginalized genders of any age (teens welcome) who love to sing and perform, and want to improve in a team setting. We are devoted to excellence in our craft with a strong component of fun and personal challenge. Our director is a dynamic and accomplished International gold medal winning singer in our organization and has led the chorus to many gold medal accomplishments in Western Canada. In 2012, the chorus was named the best mid-sized chorus in the world. In 2017, the chorus placed 13th out of ALL choruses in the world. Join now to follow your dreams, be a part of this amazing group and compete with us on stage at the next International competition against the top choruses from around the world!! Our arrangements are in 4-part harmony, and include classic barbershop, tender ballads, jazz, and contemporary pop (think Pentatonix!).

For your first visit, we will pair you virtually with one of our leaders so that they can assess the best voice part for you.
