About

Vancouver Turkish Choir was first founded in the 1960s. In 2008, the musicians of Musiki Parea and the Turkish Choir combined their efforts for the music they all love. Since then, the group has performed at numerous private and public events, including multicultural festivals such as Eurofest, New Westminster Royal City Multicultural Festival, and Seattle Turkfest. The Choir also continues to support the cultural events of the Turkish community in Vancouver.

This is the only Turkish choir in Vancouver and we are always looking for new singers and musicians.
