Director Search!

Peace Arch Chorus (PAC) is a women’s chorus, singing four (4) part a cappella harmony in the Barbershop Style. We chartered with Sweet Adelines International (SAI) in 1972. We are members of Region 26 and compete regionally on an annual basis winning gold, silver and bronze medals at these competitions. Musical and performance excellence are goals we continually strive for. PAC meets weekly in Langley BC on Wednesday evenings from 7:00 to 10:00 PM. Currently, because of the pandemic requirements, we are meeting on Zoom every Wednesday night. We are looking for an enthusiastic and dedicated Chorus Director to provide musical guidance and direction to our chorus members.

The successful candidate must have a background in Barbershop Harmony and affiliation with SAI.

Master class with Deke Sharon!

The weather was frightful, but we had a delighful time at the local mater class with Deke Sharon!

We and four other groups got up on stage as Deke worked through some important skill in a cappella signing for the audience. We had a wonderufl time singing "To make you feel my love" for him and the audience.  Deke also shared some lovely a cappella history with the audience - did you know that the first a cappella recording is of barbershop on a wax cylinder?

Deke truly has a passion for a cappella music - there's a reason they call him the "godfather of a cappella"!

“You’ve got to keep active and participate,” she said. “You have to be part of things - that’s how you get to know people. I don’t want to sit and watch TV all the time.”
