The Quintessential Vocal Ensemble (QVE) has become recognized as one of Canada’s most accomplished amateur choirs, bringing together more than 40 singers from the thriving musical community of St. John’s, Newfoundland and Labrador. Founded in 1993, its members encompass a range of experienced singers, instrumentalists, music teachers, students, and professionals of diverse backgrounds, with a love for eclectic and engaging repertoire and an exceptional standard of performance. The choir is known especially for its a cappella repertoire of many styles and periods (works by contemporary composers, Renaissance, Romantic, folk/traditional, spirituals, pop/jazz). In recent years, QVE has also taken on major classical works and collaborated in large-scale productions for symphony and stage.
