If you know of any excellent choral musicians who will be looking for a choir to sing with in the Vancouver area next season, please encourage them to contact me. I include some information below, suitable for forwarding, and would be happy to answer any further questions you may have.
All best wishes,
Dr. John William Trotter

The Pacifica Singers are a select ensemble of 16-18 voices led by award-winning conductor John William Trotter, Assistant Conductor of the Vancouver Chamber Choir. The ensemble was established in 2009 to provide a performance venue for experienced and motivated choral singers whose goal is to make music at a very high level. In providing direct exposure to the world of professional music making, it offers an experience of exceptional value for singers intending to make music their career. Current members are drawn from throughout the Lower Mainland region, with many also serving as conductors, music educators, and/or professional singers in their communities.
The Pacifica Singers will perform in four concerts with the Vancouver Chamber Choir in the course of the 2010-2011 season, in addition to one independent production. Repertoire will include masterpieces by Vivaldi, Fauré, Schubert, Brahms, Rachmaninoff, and others.
Auditions will be held on the evening of Tuesday, August 24, 2010, at 1254 West 7th Avenue (Hodson Manor) in Vancouver. An alternate date will be scheduled for singers who cannot attend.
