The People Who Make Chilliwack Symphony Orchestra
The Chilliwack Symphony Orchestra is one of the only professional orchestras in the Fraser Valley and east of the Port Mann Bridge. We also have a Baroque ensemble that performs on period instruments.
The Chilliwack Symphony Chorus is an auditioned performance choir and we love to sing for people. We have openings in all voice types. Interested singers must be willing to make a year long commitment and must be able to read music.
The Starlets are retro style singers who will take you back to the Gatsby era (roaring twenties through to the thirties) with a mixture of authentic vintage and modern pop songs arranged to sound like songs of the times, to a 1940s wartime tribute (Andrews Sisters), to swing.
