Ensemble Laude welcomes new singers!
If you enjoy early and world music and wish to share our passion for choral and chamber singing, we’d love to hear from you.
Ensemble Laude consists of female voices of all ages and musical backgrounds. From professional musicians to people who learn music by ear, from music students to mature singers, our voices blend into a harmonious, cohesive whole under the inspired musical leadership of Elizabeth MacIsaac.
New singers are normally admitted in September following an audition, but please feel free to contact us at any time if you have an interest in joining. Singers must possess good intonation and vocal independence, but are not required to have music reading skills.
Choir members receive instruction in various choral styles, including early music performance traditions and techniques. Experienced vocalists are offered solo and small group opportunities within the concert context.
Ensemble Laude rehearses Tuesday evenings, from September to June, with a break in January and February. Regular attendance, barring illness, is required.
Rehearsals are held at Lutheran Church of the Cross, 3787 Cedar Hill Road, Victoria BC.
The choir performs several concerts on southern Vancouver Island each year. Ensemble Laude has four main performances that all members are required to attend in December and June in Victoria. We also perform for charities and other events at various times during the year, but these are optional for choir members.
The annual chorister fees of $300 include membership to the Ensemble Laude Choral Society for the two regular sessions. Summer session for tours or festivals is offered at an additional fee.
If you are interested in being a part of this unique choral experience and would like more information about joining Ensemble Laude or arranging an audition, please email us.
