The Richmond Singers

A 55 Voice Women’s Choir

The Richmond Singers, the oldest community choir in Richmond, started singing in 1971. Their focus is to sing in harmony, a variety of music for the enjoyment of the members as well as to give public and private performances for the listening pleasure of others and promote equality without discrimination. They celebrated their 50th year with a commissioned piece of music called “Our Song” written by local songwriter Katrina Gimon, words by Lauren Peat which debuted at their June 2022 concert.

This 55 member women’s choir stayed together and sang together through COVID via the Zoom platform and the singers are pleased that they have been able to meet and sing in person this past year. However, they continue to sing with masks for the safety of the singers and their audience. Their December 3, 2022 family concert “Celebrate the Light” at Broadmoor Baptist Church featured local artist Conor Stuart on Violin, The Richmond Singers Ensemble, Steven Johnston on Bass, Christopher Haas on Drums and an audience carol sing a long.

On April 29th, 2023, the Richmond Singers sang a joint concert with the Victoria Mendelssohn choir in Sidney on Vancouver Island, and are very honoured to be invited to sing at the annual Richmond Arts Awards Ceremony at Richmond Gateway on May 17th.

They will sing their Spring programme “After the Storm” in Richmond on May 28th at the South Arm United Church for an afternoon concert. Guest musicians include Steven Johnston, Christopher Haas and dulcimer player Saina Khaledi.

The 18-member Richmond Singers Ensemble are pleased to be able to sing in person at Senior Care facilities and small local events again. They perform a short program for the residents and then have the audience interact in a sing-a-long before singing a few final songs

During COVID both choirs produced “virtual recordings” that are available for download on their website and song recordings for your listening pleasure:
