The Victoria Philharmonic Choir is an auditioned, multi-generational ensemble of 50-60 voices, directed by Peter Butterfield. Mr. Butterfield’s skill in vocal training and his joyful and exacting leadership style continue to shape VPC into a choir that is at home in a wide-ranging repertoire, from the Renaissance to the twenty-first century.
