Who We Are

What began over 40 years ago in the Spring of 1976 by Abbotsford choral conductor Rudy Baerg has grown to become a choir every community would be proud to claim as their own.  The Valley Festival Singers of Abbotsford, BC is a choir where community happens.

Mutli-generational, the Valley Festival Singers is comprised of adult singers of all ages.  The common thread is their love of singing and their joy is sharing choral music.  Marilyn Bysouth, former president of the VFS says, “Music is a vital part of everyone’s lives; it brings immeasurable joy and it is a lifeline to our community.  I am privileged to be a part of the Valley Festival Singers.

Former directors include:  Rudy Baerg, John Nickel, Gail Suderman & Tony Funk
