2016 Inaugural Season
Rain Coast Choir was formed in December 2016. During our first season, we grew into a tight-knit core group of 12 singers, meeting weekly in the apartment of our founder, Joline Baylis, practicing our harmonies for a discerning cat named Chloe. Our repertoire spanned decades of pop and rock classics, including songs from The Turtles, M. Ward, and Hurray for the Riff Raff.
In June 2017, we ended our season with a performance at St. James Hall in Kitsilano. We had the pleasure of opening for our own Kristina Emmott (aka willolux) at her album release show, and joining her band on stage to lend our harmonies to some of her beautiful songs. We celebrated the fruits of our hard work with an amazing night in an inspiring venue.
