CHORthemo is an exciting ensemble and this will be its 4th season. The advanced choir program offers singers the opportunity to achieve the highest artistic standards in interpretation, movement and singing through the study of quality choral literature. Singers will have the opportunity to work with voice teachers, professional conductors, choreographers and drama coaches and the VCS Adult Choir. This is also a great way to build amazing life-long friendships.

Christmas4Led by Gerda Blok-Wilson and accompanied by Kevin Eng, this performing choir (boys and girls age 9 – 18) will offer singers a wide variety of 2, 3 and 4part mixed voice repertoire (including boys changing voices), more advanced vocal technique and musical theatre stage experience. This is an auditioned choir. New singers will be contacted by Artistic Director, Gerda Blok-Wilson, regarding an audition/interview.

We are looking for singers (boys and girls) who love to be on stage and demonstrate boundless enthusiasm! The Level 3 and 4 choirs will rehearse together for some warm up and songs and also on their own.
