A Home for all Voices – since 1967
Newcombe Singers is a non-auditioned community choir, singing a very diverse repertoire. We love to challenge ourselves with classical pieces, both traditional and contemporary. Everyone with a love of choral music and a passion for collaboration, exploration, and performance is welcome to sing with us.
We perform a Winter and a Spring concert every year. We also sing regularly at the B.C. Legislature, the Royal B.C. Museum, seniors’ centres, lodges, hospitals, and community venues across the Southern Vancouver Island Region.
Formed in 1967 by members of three British Columbia Civil Service unions, the Newcombe Glee Club was formed originally to provide musical entertainment in the Rotunda of the B.C. Legislature Building for colleagues and the general public during the Christmas season.
Under our current music director, Kathryn Whitney, we are exploring some of the most beautiful choral repertoire written for accompanied and a capella voices, mixing both composed SATB works by Canadian and other composers, with arrangements of familiar folk and popular songs.

We hope you will join us!
