The Allegra Singers is excited to announce the celebration of our 20th Anniversary!
Come join us for a weekend of fun and celebration, with a Meet & Greet on Friday night for our returning Allegra Singers members, and then a Saturday afternoon concert for the public, followed by a Celebration Banquet for all of our Allegra Singers members and their spouses. (See the detailed schedule below.)
Welcome to the website for The Allegra Singers of Victoria, British Columbia, Canada. Our goal is to enjoy our music, improve our skills, entertain and touch our audiences and have fun in the process.
We perform a wide variety of music - from classical to jazz, gospel to musical theatre, world music to pop, folk, rock… you get the picture. Please check our Concerts page for performance information.
Jennifer Parlee has been the musical director of the Allegra Singers since 1996. She is a talented musician and teacher whose leadership and support inspires us to create something wonderful. As choral singers know, there is no experience like joining voices in harmony. We couldn’t do it without her.
The Allegra Singers celebrated its 10th anniversary in 2006. We have enjoyed performing in many events in addition to our regular concert series. These include larger events such as "2000 Voices" to celebrate the millennium and "Sing for a Lifetime" in 2002, as well as more intimate performances for small groups and local businesses. Our venues range from Hatley and Craigdarroch Castles to singing in the park in Ganges on Saltspring Island.
We are a non-profit group, and are dedicated to contributing to other local charities. Every year the choir members choose the recipients of our efforts. Past beneficiaries include the Cridge Centre for the Family, Angel Flight of Vancouver Island, the Ovarian Cancer Society, and Project Literacy Victoria, along with many others.
