About the Sooke Philharmonic Orchestra and Chorus

Members of the Sooke Philharmonic Orchestra will again entertain attendees at various venues throughout the Sooke Secret Garden Tour

2018 marks the 20th anniversary for Sooke’s full-size semi-professional orchestra.  It was founded in 1997 by Norman Nelson and performed its first concert in June 1998. The Sooke Philharmonic Chorus originated as the all-female Sooke Festival Chorus in 2000. Men joined in 2001 and the current name was adopted in 2002.

This community Orchestra presents a full season of entertainment for Southern Vancouver Island. It also depends upon fundraisers such as the Garden Tour and on donations from the public.  For further information on the Orchestra and a schedule of their events, or if you would like to learn about the options for donating directly to the orchestra,  please contact the organization at
