The Gettin’ Higher Choir


Esquimalt Gorge Park Pavilion, Esquimalt, BC, Canada


The Gettin’ Higher Choir seeks to embrace and celebrate humanity’s highest aspirations through music, welcoming people of all ages and backgrounds. We are not associated with any particular religion or spiritual path.

There is no audition, and no vocal experience is required, just a desire to sing in harmony with others.

Our aim is to re-integrate singing into the daily routines of life. We sing for the pure joy and pleasure it gives us, in an atmosphere that is fun, relaxed, and accepting. Our repertoire consists of both traditional and new songs from many cultures. The majority are sung a cappella (unaccompanied voices only) in 4-part harmony.

The choir is directed by Cathy Baker and Dick Jackson. There are 3 sessions available each week:

  • Tuesday – in-person and on Zoom -7-9pm Pacific Time
  • Wednesday – drop-in on Zoom – 7-8.30pm
  • Thursday – on Zoom, with at least 4 singers broadcasting to everyone else – 7-8.45pm

Session times

Tuesday 7-9pm - in-person and on Zoom
