the Sweet Soul Choir

Welcome to the Sweet Soul Choir!

We’ve been bringing lively and uplifting music to Victoria and the Island for 20 years! Led by our talented director, Checo Tohomaso, we perform a unique and high energy music mix of Motown, R&B, Soul, and Gospel. We’re the only local choir that incorporates choreography, adding extra fun to our performances.

Our next concert is Sunday, August 11th. We are excited to be singing for the City of Victoria in its Summer Concert Series, performing in the Cameron Bandshell at Beacon Hill Park (1:30-3:30 pm).

We are a no-audition choir, and bring singers of all ages and walks of life together. Join our wonderful community and share the joy!

Our Fall Season starts Tuesday, September 24th. Workshops and rehearsals are drop-in, and held in the Selkirk Montessori School, at 2790 Jutland Road, Victoria, BC. Drop-in fees for workshops are $10.00. Rehearsals with Checo are $15.00.

Meet Our Director, Checo Tohomaso

Our enthusiastic director, Checo Tohomaso, has performed all around the world with notable performers like Marvin Gaye, Lionel Richie, and the Commodores

After his performance at Expo ’86, Checo decided to settle in Vancouver, BC. He now travels back and forth to Victoria to bring that authentic Motown sound to our choir.
