About Us

Welcome to the Simon Fraser University Choir!

While the majority of our members are based around the SFU community, music knows no boundaries, attracting members throughout the Lower Mainland.

With its humble beginnings in 1992, the choir has grown over the years in all aspects– musically, in its membership, and by its presence in the broader community. We attribute our longevity to an ability to strike a balance between a variety of music - from Game of Thrones and Lord of the Rings, to African and gospel music and a full-fledged Requiem mass.

We look forward to seeing you!
