Bringing together the mass voices of our associate choir, the VIVA Chamber Singers of Toronto, and the Amadeus Choir of Greater Toronto with the Elmer Iseler Singers. The three choirs are joined by soloists and orchestra.
After two years of online mentorship and training with the VIVA Chamber Singers, we are so excited to come together in person.
The VIVA Chamber Singers (an SATB chamber choir) is comprised of experienced and highly-skilled singers who are young professionals, post-secondary students, and senior high school students.
VIVA was founded in 2000 by Carol Woodward Ratzlaff in response to widespread cuts to public school arts programs. As a lifelong vocal music educator, she believes that every person should have access to a singing experience. With this in mind, VIVA is committed to putting chorister voice at the forefront of their organization through the core values of choral performance artistry, choral creation and vocal music education, inclusive choral practices, choral leadership and mentoring, and community connections.
The Amadeus Choir of Greater Toronto is celebrating 50 years of enlivening the Toronto arts landscape through energetic performances, unexpected programming and artistic collaborations that redefine the boundaries of traditional choral music.
Led by Artistic Director Kathleen Allan, the Choir champions the best of choral music and premieres works of Canadian and international composers through a self-produced Toronto concert series, guest performances, and special events. The Amadeus Choir regularly commissions work from high-profile and emerging Canadian composers and recently established the Choral Creation Lab, a residency for composers and poets to co-create original works.
