The Allegra Singers celebrated its 20th anniversary in 2016! 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. Next stop? Ireland!
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. See more on our Community page.
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.
Al Kornelsen brings a wide range of experience to the Allegra Singers, already playing for a number of choirs in the few short years they’ve been in Victoria. We are very pleased to have Al share their talent and love of music with us onstage.
The Allegra Singers is a proud member of the BC Choral Federation
