Where We Rehearse!

Rehearsals are currently held at Pacific Gardens Co-Housing Community in Nanaimo 347 7th Street Nanaimo BC from 10 am-12 pm every Saturday morning. Please arrive 5 – 10 minutes before 10 am so we can start on time. If you are unable to attend a rehearsal we ask that you notify your sectional contact. When you become a member, we give you a list of contact details that outline who your sectional contact is, and much much more!


Concerts help us share our joyful serenades. Our aim is to have one main concert a year, in addition to mini seasonal concerts at senior residences and performing at our Beverage and Burger fundraiser. Concert attire is Black pants or a skirt, a long-sleeve shirt with a collar, and preferably black shoes and socks. Programs are distributed to the public, which may include a list of choir members. Your name and photograph may be excluded on request with the exception of formal professional photographs done for major competitions.

Your Fellow Choir Members Will Support You

AVIVA believes in being inclusive and respecting all people. We welcome those with a little singing background and encourage members to build self-esteem and confidence through singing. We believe that magic happens when we sing. When we come together as one in song, this transformative experience leads to further self-awareness and growth.

We Have Low Membership Fees!

We have built the choir fees around our members! Our fees are per four-month term and are very low, $100 per term. Our fees cover the director and accompanist costs, rehearsal space rental, and music costs. We are very open to installments if cost is an issue. We have a sliding scale option. For further information contact our treasurer Duffy at

Are There Auditions?

We are a non-audition choir. We welcome both experienced and beginner singers. There is always room for more voices in the AVIVA family. We boast a range of members from the young to the young at heart. Our membership is inclusive of ongoing choir voice training and coaching, so you can be assured that you will improve drastically as early as one month after you join, just ask our members!

We Are Looking For Partners!

The membership fees our members pay are extremely lean, they simply cover the bare necessities that keep our choir breaking even. We have a vision of attracting brilliant members that will carry our choir around Canada and America on a tour that will represent Vancouver Island on a national and international level. We want to be Vancouver Island’s national voice.

Help us today by becoming a partner

and contributing to your community’s national voice.
