Chor Leoni welcomes experienced individual male singers to be part of the VAN/MAN MALE CHORAL SUMMIT by registering for the VAN/MAN Festival Singers. Join us for rehearsals and performances in the spectacular Chan Centre for the Performing Arts, one of Western Canada’s premier concert halls. Rehearse, perform, and enjoy the camaraderie of over 400+ singing men.
Your VAN/MAN experience begins on Friday with a mass rehearsal with Chor Leoni’s Erick Lichte (5:30pm ) prior to the Chanticleer concert. We will adjourn in time to be seated for Chanticleer in Concert (Friday, 8pm). Your registration includes an A-level ticket to the hottest choral event of the season, and we’ve save some of the best seats in the house for you.
Saturday is a full day (10am – 10pm) that includes rehearsals, workshops with Chanticleer, and two performances of our mass choir repertoire:
