A Maillardville mainstay is ramping up to highlight four decades of harmony through song.
Les Échos du Pacifique celebrated its 40th anniversary last year, and the group’s longevity is a testament to celebrating the past, while embracing the present.
According to choir president Daniel Bouchard, the choir started out as a group of “French-Canadian Catholics” exclusively from Maillardville. But while francophone culture is still at the forefront, the group has diversified. “Back then it was a really Maillardville-based, francophone type of community choir. Now the choir brings in people from across the Lower Mainland.”
