AVIVA Chorus kick starting their Pride tour. What an amazing concert in Victoria, followed by an outstanding Concert for our practice space, Pacific Gardens Co-Housing, then we fly and drive on an adventure to Calgary’s Unison Festival of LGBTQ Choirs from across Canada. After Calgary we are back to kick off Nanaimo’s Pride Flag Raising, June 6 at 6 at City Hall. May your voices always be with you over the rainbow and through the storm.
