Musaic Vocal Ensemble is an adult mixed choir that has been based in Summerland, BC, Canada, since 1995. They delight in singing a wide variety of sacred and secular repertoire in performances throughout the Okanagan Valley and beyond, including competing in the prestigious International Choral Kathaumixw festival in 2014. Led by music director Frances Chiasson since 2017, Musaic’s vision is to inspire and unite its members through choral music, achieve high artistic standards, explore diverse programming, and reach audiences within the Okanagan and beyond. Recent musical repertoire ranges from classical to jazz to gospel, and recent highlights include Verdi’s Requiem with the Okanagan Symphony Orchestra, Bob Chilcott’s The Little Jazz Mass and James Whitbourn’s Annelies, based on the Diary of Anne Frank. Musaic regularly welcomes new singers to audition for membership, especially those with a strong music reading background.
