…where Motown, R&B, and Gospel meet!

Everyone is welcome to sing with us, and your first visit is free!

There are no auditions or prerequisites, and you don’t even need to know how to read music. All song lyrics and music recordings are available in the Members’ section of this website.

Our music is influenced by the gospel and Motown sound, but we are not affiliated with any church or religion – we sing purely for the joy of singing and all are welcome.

Meet some of our singers and hear why they love being a part of the Victoria Soul Gospel Choir.


Every other Tuesday, choir director Checo Tohomaso travels from Vancouver bringing his infectious energy to lead a two-hour group rehearsal from 5:45 p.m. – 8:00 p.m. Each alternate Tuesday, members can attend a community led workshop. 

All rehearsals and workshops are held at Selkirk Montessori School in the gymnasium at 2970 Jutland Road, Victoria, BC V8T 5K2.

We sing for two hours straight, so we suggest you bring some water to sip on.
