Harper Grey Lawyer, Siobhan Sams, has been elected President of the Board of the Vancouver Choral Arts Society, a registered charity and the umbrella organisation for what is known as the Vancouver Youth Choir or VYC. The VYC was founded in 2013 and has since grown from a single choir of 30 singers to nearly 250 singers across five separate ensembles. Its mission is to create a choral community which fosters artistic excellence and human potential through innovation, mentorship and a sense of belonging. Singers range in age from 5 to 24 and there is a bursary programme for those in need. A longtime believer in the benefits of choral singing, Siobhan joined the Board in 2017 for a three year term. She was elected Secretary in 2018. After this year, Siobhan is eligible to stand for re-election for up to two more terms.
