Festival Choir

Come Sing With Us!

The Mission Folk Music Festival, under the direction of Choir Director Deborah Handley, has nurtured a community-centered choir that brings together audience members with festival artists to produce the Festival Choir Project. Audience members and festival artists sing together, in concert at the Festival. This Festival Choir is inclusive, empowering, and welcomes all who want to sing. 

2022 pre-festival rehearsals will take place on Monday & Thursday July 18 & 21, from 7 – 9pm in the Lower Hall of All Saints Anglican Church, 33077 2nd Ave, Mission, BC, Mission. (While these rehearsals are not mandatory, they are very helpful!)

During the Festival there will be 3 onsite rehearsals (2 on Saturday, 1 on Sunday), and the Big Sing performance happens on Sunday afternoon on the Ursa Minor Stage.
