The Choir

Vocal Alchemy was created by a group of experienced singers convinced that a welcoming attitude is compatible with making great choral music. Since our founding in 2002, our membership and leadership have seen much change and growth. But as a group, we have never wavered in our conviction that singing together is transformative.

Vocal Alchemy is non-auditioned, because we want to share that transformative power with as many people as possible. We welcome singers of all ages and experience levels, from all walks of life, who share our dedication to learning and our desire to make beautiful music.

Artistic director Jordan Van Biert guides the choir as it seeks to reach its full potential. Jordan’s deep knowledge of choral repertoire and of how humans learn to make music allows him to provide an unmatched teaching experience to the choir. He challenges us to learn new skills, and he fosters collaborations with other groups and soloists that help raise the choir to higher levels.

Our repertoire celebrates the abundance of the Western choral tradition, from the folk music of the Maritimes to monuments of the classical period. Whatever we sing, our aim is always to delight our audience and grow as singers.

sing. share. be inspired.
