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!”
Common Thread Community Chorus adopts the following statement as part of its foundational commitments:
CT acknowledges that, for thousands of years, these lands have been the traditional lands of the Huron-Wendat, the Seneca, and most recently the Mississaugas of the New Credit. CT also acknowledges that this territory remains the home of many indigenous people from across Turtle Island. CT members and supporters are grateful to be able to gather and sing here.
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.
Our first concert of the season is coming up on 2 December!
We will be singing at the chapel of Victoria College, 91 Charles St. West (in behind the Isabel Bader Theatre.)
