Rupert Lang
Founded in 1983 by Rupert Lang, the Vancouver Children's Choir has been praised for their artistry at local music festivals, including the International Kathaumixw in Powell River and placed second in the Children's Choir category at the International Musical Eisteddfod, in Llangollen, Wales.

Throughout their history, VCC has offered excellent vocal training, as well as a wide variety of performance experiences. These have included singing for Prince Charles and Princess Diana at Expo 86 and at many civic and provincial functions. The choir has also performed sound-track work for NBC and Paramount Pictures, provided back-up vocals for artists such as mezzo-soprano Judith Forst and the Vancouver Symphony, and sung for a diverse range of corporate events – including at sunset on the top of Whistler Mountain! The VCC has performed at Carnegie Hall in New York and St. Peter's in Rome. The choir has toured Italy and England.

Vancouver Children's Choir training is based first and foremost on a foundation of masterwork repertoire such as Gregorian Chant and the works of Bach, Mozart and Britten. A breadth of experience is provided through singing in many different languages: a variety of styles such as gospel, jazz, folk, Broadway and newly commissioned works gives the singers poise and maturity in their artistry.

The VCC philosophy states that each chorister must also be willing (as part of the condition of membership in this choir) to offer their vocal talent on a regular basis to church services, national and civic events (such as Canada Day and Citizenship Ceremonies), as well as local charity and fund-raiser events, such as CBC Radio's 2003 Annual Food Bank Day.

They have recorded 4 albums: Cantate, Spirit of the Child, Can You Imagine?, and Carol of the Child. In each case, the album title is taken from the title of a commissioned work written especially for the Vancouver Children's Choir by their director, Rupert Lang.
