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 (5:30pm) at downtown Vancouver’s Queen Elizabeth Theatre with a mass rehearsal with Chor Leoni’s Erick Lichte prior to the TAKE 6 concert in the same venue. We will adjourn in time to be seated for the concert. 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) at the spectacular Chan Centre for the Performing Arts (UBC) that includes rehearsals, workshops with TAKE 6, and two performances of our mass choir repertoire:
4pm – We sing the massed choir selections as part of the MYVoice at the Chan concert, where we will be seated in the Chan Centre’s choral loft.
