AVIVA Chorus – Celebrating the diversity of the LGBTQ2+ Community
“We are a community of people from different backgrounds and experiences who come together to share our joy and passion of singing. We believe in being inclusive and respectful of all people. We choose music that reflects the diversity of various cultures and spiritual practices as well as different expressions of gender identity. When we join together in song our spirits are lifted, our connections deepened and we feel a true sense of belonging.”

Diane Taylor
Victoria musician and music teacher Diane Taylor IS the music. Her love for music shines through in her compositions and piano work. And her voice keeps audiences coming back to hear her wherever she plays. Original solo piano compositions to jazz standards, post bop, jazz improv, singer/songwriter styles—Diane will keep you jumping. She has composed and improvised music for contemporary dance performance, too.  Diane also calls Hornby Island and Nelson B.C. home.

Melaney Black
“Music is light, joy, healer, challenge. I’ve been performing, learning and teaching since I was four years old; every song, every genre helps me discover something new. I’m also a freelance writer/editor, light verse poet, hiker, cyclist and—gasp—poor but passionate golfer.”

Vita Fioritti
No stranger to the stage, Vita Fioritti has delighted audiences whether singing in operettas, bands (remember Peanut Butter Jam?), choirs or churches over the last 30 years. “Music lifts the spirit, opens hearts and breaks down barriers…first for me, and then for others.”

Louise n’ha Ruby
Louise n’ha Ruby is a professional singer, songwriter, actor and vocal coach with live concert and television performances to her credit. With extensive training in both classical and jazz genres, she has been performing and teaching for decades. Her style is ever changing and developing, but the essence of working with the breath and the body remains. She has been greatly inspired by her work with Rhiannon and this influence is evidenced in her approach to music and to life.
