After 17 seasons, Out in Harmony’s director is moving across the country. We are looking for the right person to lead us into our next chapter, starting in the fall of 2020.
Formed in 1990, Out in Harmony is Vancouver’s Gay, Bi, Trans, Queer, Lesbian & Friends’ Choir. We are a non-auditioned group of gay, lesbian, bisexual, transgender, queer, questioning, and supportive straight individuals who are proud of who we are, both as individuals and as a choir. We sing in harmony, and we live in harmony as people from all walks of life. We are a group that truly welcomes all, regardless of financial or physical restrictions. We are a group that embraces diversity and celebrates community. For more about us, see outinharmony.org
We rehearse in East Vancouver from 7:30 – 9:30 on Tuesday evenings. We hold two concerts a year (January and June), twice-yearly weekend intensives, and occasional community outreach performances.
