The Valleyview Male Chorus
Valleyview Male Chorus is celebrating its twentieth anniversary this year! No one anticipated such a run at the time the fledging chorus of 15 men was initially organized to sing for a church service early in 1997. There was strong interest within the group to continue singing and so it was that in the spring of that year the chorus presented its first concert, which subsequently became an annual event. Although its ties to Valleyview Church have remained strong with its director, pianists, rehearsal space and 14 church members still part of the chorus (7 of them original members), it has gradually grown to become an established community chorus with a membership of close to 50. Its members encompass a broad spectrum in terms of age, experience, musical ability, and denominational affiliation. The repertoire includes both sacred and secular music and spans a wide genre of musical styles including classics, gospel, folk, contemporary and more.
