Vancouver Men’s Chorus Sings for LGBTQ2+ Charities at St. Paul’s Church

By Kendell Yan

As the year comes to a close and we look back at our behavior through the seasons, each and every one of us falls into either one of two categories: naughty or nice. At Christmas time there’s no denying our virtues (or lack thereof) because we know Santa Claus has been making that list. If you’re looking to repent through a boisterous sermon of song among a vaulted ceiling and stained glass, the Vancouver Men’s Chorus will be at the pulpit at St. Paul’s Anglican Church this December to sing to your fame and follies for all to hear. Don’t worry, you’re welcome either way.

The Vancouver Men’s Chorus is registered as a federal and provincial charitable non-profit organization and is a member of both the British Columbia Choral Federation and GALA choruses, an organization of over one hundred LGBTQ2+ choruses across Canada, the United States, Europe, and Australia. Founded in 1981, the chorus is composed of over 80 queer men and their friends who support other charitable organizations such as the Positive Living Society and the Vancouver AIDS Walk.

General admission is available online and through the Scotiabank at Robson and Bute for $37, and every ticket sold through the Robson St Scotiabank branch will be matched in donation by the bank. Or, you can become a patron and receive early access to tickets available online for $87 which includes a $50 tax receipt, reserved seating, and no lines.
