Sing with Island Soul Choir!

All you need is a desire to sing. There are no auditions. It doesn’t matter if you’ve never sung in a choir before. You don’t even need to know how to read music. This is a community choir in its truest sense!

Check the Rehearsal & Concert Schedule and Member Handbook (see buttons below) for complete details. If you still have other questions, be sure to contact us. We’ll be happy to help.

What being in the choir means to our members

It means joy and inspiration… singing music that transcends race and nationality to touch the human being in all of us… living a dream you thought would never materialize… finding your own voice and making it heard in the world…joining voices to create beautiful harmonies… energizing us with passion to take on life’s adventures with renewed vigour.

It means connection and sharing with the other singers… laughing at our mistakes, then regrouping and trying harder to get it right… celebrating, encouraging and supporting those who step up to sing a solo… seeing our audience enjoying themselves so much that they stand up and dance and clap to our songs… feeling alive and present, calm and energized at the same time, like having a really good workout without all the sweat and sore muscles.

It means community… making me a part of something bigger than just myself… a collective and inclusive friendliness and warmth… going beyond the confines of the familiar, bonding strangers together through the music… transcending beyond our oneness and getting in touch with the energy that we are all part of.

All of this and more is what being in the choir means for us, and it’s what keeps us coming back!


Special Feature for FALL23: Workshop with Bongani Magatyana

We are pleased to announce that Bongani Magatyana will be conducting a special workshop with us as part of our third rehearsal on October 14.

Bongani is an incredible composer, musician and teacher from Cape Town, South Africa. ISC has already sung a number of his songs, and a number of us had the privilege of working with him via Zoom during the pandemic; others were part of a SongRoutes tour to South Africa in early 2020 and worked with him in person.

During this workshop, Bongani will work with us on the African songs within our repertoire this session, and also expand our knowledge of South Africa’s vibrant music and its traditions.

This workshop is exclusive for our FALL23 members. There is no additional cost to take advantage of this workshop; it’s all a part of your ISC member fee!

If the dates of our FALL23 session don't work for you, and you'd like to work with Bongani, CLICK HERE to check out details/register for his workshop in Vancouver on Oct 15!
