An Invitation to join the Richmond Orchestra and Chorus!

Good afternoon, new neighbours. I moved into Unit 20 at the end of August and loved my new home right away.

Unfortunately, I am unable to attend the Town Hall meeting this evening. I have met a few of you already but hope to meet more of you in the upcoming months. My unavailability to attend the meeting this evening is due to my commitment to attend a rehearsal of the Richmond Orchestra and Chorus (ROCA). I am a chorus member (Soprano I) — our rehearsals are every Tuesday evening from 7:30 pm to 9:30 pm. It is important to keep this commitment for the sake of excellent choral performance.
If any of you play an instrument or like to sing, let me know — the Orchestra and Chorus are always looking for new members. I’ll drop a brochure into your mailboxes for you to be aware of our upcoming performances in 2018-2019, and our ROCA website.

My best to all of you, and hope to be seeing you around the neighbourhood.

Heather (Kulyk) McDonald (Unit 20)


Can You Hear the Music?

Did you know?Cartoon drawing of 11 people holding sheet music while singing at choir practice.

We have neighbours who sing with the Vancouver Oratorio Society! Can you figure out who they are?

Go to their website at, look closely at the photos of some of their performances and try to spot the familiar faces amongst the singers!

You can listen to samples of their music at:
Psalm 100 by An-Lun Huang
Praises of Thanksgiving by Chan Wing Wah

Or, even better, go to their next performance on May 27th, 2018 from 7:30pm at Bethany Baptist Church here in Richmond on Westminster Highway… it’s FREE of charge!

Did you notice the live orchestra accompanying them? Wow!

Hope to see you at their next performance!
