The Birth of The Toronto Concert Choir
… A message from Matthew, the Music Director
The world may be practically at a standstill, but no pandemic is going to stop the enthusiastic members of Oakham House Choir from creating a brand new choir: The Toronto Concert Choir.
Continuing the tradition of the Oakham House Choir, the Toronto Concert Choir will welcome singers of all levels of ability and inspire them to strive for excellence. We want our performances to be exciting, expressive, captivating, and lively.
We will also continue to perform works composed mostly for orchestra, soloists and choir; great choral works from previous centuries, as well as recent works rooted in traditional choral style. In our new choir, however, we will expand our repertoire by exploring contemporary music inspired by different traditions.
At present, all members of the new Toronto Concert Choir will be coming from the recently disbanded Oakham House Choir, but we are hoping to expand our existing 100+ membership to a bigger, better and more inclusive group. We are also working on establishing a formal relationship with Ryerson University.
