Our History

The Story Of The Squires

The Victoria Village Squires go back to 1967, when the oldest BC Chorus, the Vancouver Thunderbirds, helped us acquire our charter from the then "SPEBSQA Inc.", now known as the Barbershop Harmony Society.

  • December 19, 1965 - The Victoria City Chordsmen are Chartered, sponsored by The Vancouver Thunderbirds.
  • January 20, 1968 - Inaugural Show, McPherson Theater, Victoria, BC
  • 1970 - Chapter name changed to Victoria Village Squires.
More to come...we are gathering our history from documents and memory - please be patient.

Thank you!
