The long standing and ever popular Gabriola Chamber Ensemble (GCE) is firing up for the new season and welcomes new members, especially instrumentalists. Our Spring, 2018 season starts Monday, January 15th, 6:00 pm at the Christ Church Gabriola with a concert date to be held in mid-April.

The GCE’s versatile musical director , Brad Shipley, leads a group of enthusiastic instrumentalists and singers who share a love of classical music from various periods ranging from early 15th century to early 20th century composers. 

While striving to develop in range and complexity, the group has a long term and continuing presence on Gabriola as the leading classical ensemble catering to many tastes.

The Ensemble welcomes singers and instrumentalists of all ages at varying levels of musicality who are willing to learn and follow direction.

Our weekly Monday rehearsal times are the orchestra from 6:00 to 7:15 pm and the choir from 7:20 to 9:00 pm but the first rehearsal at 6:00 on January 15th, will be for the whole ensemble and will start with a meeting and pot luck appies followed by a short rehearsal.

The fee for each season is $75.00. If you are interested in joining the GCE, please contact Brad Shipley at 250-247-9486 bradleywshipley@gmail.com.
