Pacific Opera

Falstaff, 2013

The Pacific Opera Victoria Chorus, directed by Chorus Master Giuseppe Pietraroia has an important impact on the high quality of Pacific Opera Victoria's productions. Adults of all ages, the choristers include community singers, aspiring professionals, and vocal students at the Victoria Conservatory of Music and the University of Victoria.

Thanks to a generous anonymous grant, POV provides enhanced training and opportunities to develop the enormous potential of the POV chorus. Our Artist Development Program offers a range of workshops, master classes by visiting artists, and other programs designed for our chorus members, as well as for other students of voice and practising artists working in the fields of music, theatre, stage design and direction.

With enhanced training and support for our choristers, POV is making great strides toward attracting this community's most promising and dedicated singers, nurturing their development, and presenting a solid, impeccably trained, highly motivated chorus for each production.
