Welcome to Common Thread Community Chorus of Toronto!
OUR MISSION STATEMENT
Common Thread: Community Chorus of Toronto is a non-audition chorus which promotes a sense of community by performing joyful and empowering music. All voices are welcome! We believe that everyone can sing and that together we can make beautiful music. We sing music that celebrates the dignity of all people and their struggles to create a better world. We sing for recreation, for reverence, for learning and laughter, for struggle, for hope and for understanding. One of our goals is to encourage people to sing in their everyday lives. To that end we often invite our audience to sing along. We aim to “Put a song on people’s lips, and not just in their ears!”
CT Kids: Fun and empowering songs, building a sense of belonging, respect for diversity and positive social change from a youth perspective. Click here for more information.
HOLD THESE DATES!
Saturday, 10 December, we will have the first concert of our new season, with songs and ceremonies by us, by CT Kids, and by our special guest and collaborator this year Kim Wheatley. More information to come real soon now in our occasional newsletter, for which you can sign up in the column over to the right.
And Wednesday, 14 December, is our chorus’ Annual General Meeting. Active singers and other general members are invited to come share an always-delicious potluck supper and then to share in our annual business meeting; we are a democratically run organisation, and we will have our election of the Board of Directors at this time, and consider other Chorus business.
