Expand your horizons on the very edge of our continent at the gateway to the Pacific. Share your songs and deepen your choral aptitude at the Vancouver Young Musicians' Festival. Experience all of the wonders and tranquil beauty that a trip to the province of British Columbia affords! British Columbia is the lush green jewel of the Pacific Northwest and the rugged westernmost province of Canada—a place where rare ecosystems flourish alongside major cities like Vancouver and Victoria, BC's capital.
Each year in April, youth choirs come together in Vancouver, British Columbia's vibrant seaport and Canada's most ethnically diverse city, to perform for each other and work on technique with acclaimed clinicians who listen to and evaluate their performances. Guest directors at past festivals have included the talented Eugene Rogers, John Wiebe, Elroy Friesen, and Debbie Glaze.
A fantastic ferry ride away lies Vancouver Island, the largest island off the West Coast of North America. Take in the charming capital of Victoria and its beautifully preserved 19th-century architecture and reverent upholding of aboriginal First Nations traditions.
