About Us

Common Thread Community Chorus of Toronto is a 80-voice SATB choir that promotes community and social justice through music. Our repertoire primarily comes from multicultural folk music traditions. With our diverse and meaningful repertoire, we aim to change the world one song at a time — and have fun doing it!

As a non-audition performance choir, we welcome singers from a wide range of musical experience and cultural backgrounds, all the while offering vocal and ear training opportunities to increase musical abilities. The only requirements for membership are the desire to sing and the time and commitment to attend regular rehearsals.

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 audiences to sing along. We aim to “put a song on people’s lips, not just in their ears!”

If you enjoy singing and are interested in celebrating community and nurturing social justice, you have come to the right place!

We have three main goals:

  • To build a culturally diverse group that performs music in languages from around the world
  • To develop a sense of community within the chorus and between the chorus and the broader community
  • To promote social justice through music
