We are an SATB all-inclusive,
non-auditioned community choir of about 45 adult singers, led by our music director and accompanied by a
professional pianist. Cantorion Choir was founded in 1981 as a Welsh
choir. We have evolved over the years, and our repertoire has broadened
to include classical, popular, folk, Broadway, traditional British and world
selections. We strive for choral excellence through professional training
and perform for the enjoyment of our audiences at our annual Cabaret, various concerts and less formal community sing-outs during the year. Our choristers have diverse musical knowledge, ranging from very experienced to
non-readers. We have a charitable organization status and have supported
a wide variety of charities. We are financed by concert ticket sales,
membership fees, valued sponsors and fundraising. Over the past 42 years, we
have completed a concert tour around Wales, performed in Pennsylvania and Vermont in
the U.S.A. and in many concerts around Ontario. Cantorion Choir was
determined to stay together during Covid-19 using Zoom, and we managed to hold
a virtual concert as well as participate in a collaborative music video. We are governed by a
supportive and active executive.
Rehearsals currently held at Metropolitan United Church, Tuesday evenings, 7 - 9 p.m. All are welcome! Come join us!
