At Chor Leoni, we are committed to the health and safety of our singers, audience, and community. As such, we will continue to listen and adhere to Provincial Health regulations and best-available science to ensure you are comfortable returning to the concert hall to experience a live event with us.


On Friday, December 17, the BC Public Health Office announced changes to events guidelines coming into effect on Monday. We are pleased to confirm that Christmas with Chor Leoni can move ahead as planned, based on current regulations, and we look forward to sharing beautiful music with you in the days to come.

Current health guidelines restrict venue capacity to 50% for venues with a capacity of more than 1,000. Our venue capacity is around 800, so we are maintaining our current capacity at these concerts. In addition, as reassurance of our focus on your safety, we would like to remind you of the following health guidelines enforced at the event:

  • You will be required to show proof of vaccination before entering the venue. Everyone is required to be double vaccinated. Please ensure that you arrive 30 minutes in advance of your showtime and that you have your proof of vaccination and a government-issued ID ready before getting to the door. 
  • Masks are required for all, at all times inside the venue. 
  • The run time of the show is around 75 minutes with no intermission, minimizing everyone’s time in the venue.
  • If you are ill, experiencing any symptoms of COVID-19, or have been in contact with anyone experiencing symptoms of COVID-19, we ask that you please not attend.  

What are the current health protocols in place at Chor Leoni concerts?

  • Masking is required for everyone 6 and over
  • Proof of vaccination must be presented upon entry to the venue for everyone 12 and over. Please have your vaccine passport and ID ready upon entry.
  • As of our Christmas 2021 shows, we are selling at 100% venue capacity.
  • Hand sanitizer will be available
  • Additional sanitization procedures will be employed between each concert

Can I use digital tickets on my phone?

Yes, paperless tickets are preferred! You do not have to print out your tickets. Just have the pdf ready for scanning at the door.

How do I get a student ticket?

$10 rush tickets are available for all full-time students for all performances except the VanMan Summit Concert. Please bring a valid student ID to the performance. Check at the front door prior to the performance for availability.

What time should I arrive for the concert?

Please allow extra time for the proof of vaccination check. We suggest arriving 30 minutes before you usually would for Christmas with Chor Leoni.

How long are Chor Leoni concerts?

Our shows are 75 minutes, without intermission.

What happens if I arrive late?

Our Front of House Manager will seat you at an appropriate break in the show.

Why aren’t you offering subscriptions this season?

To accommodate reduced capacity, Chor Leoni has made the difficult decision to suspend subscription package sales this season. They will return for 2022/23.

When will tickets for the VanMan Summit Concert go on sale?

Tickets for this popular concert will go on sale in the new year through the Chan Centre for the Performing Arts box office.

Will there be digital broadcasts this season?

Yes. We will be offering a digital concert alongside each of our live performances. Information and the opportunity to RSVP to receive the viewing link will be available one month prior to the live show.

How old should children be to attend a Chor Leoni concert?

It isn’t recommended for children under six years of age to attend Chor Leoni concerts. They typically find it difficult to sit still for the duration of the performance and may disturb other concertgoers if fidgeting or making noise.

What should I do about my phone or camera during a concert?

First, please silence your devices before entering the venue. Feel free to take photos before and after the show (St. Andrew’s-Wesley is stunning!) During the performance, please do not take photos or videos unless Erick gives you permission to do so during a specific song in the show.

I took a great photo, how do I share it?

We’d love to see it! Please tag @chorleoni in your Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram posts.
