Tahirih Vejdani, Toronto singer and actor

Tahirih Vejdani was the Assistant Artistic Director and Conductor with Echo Women’s Choir for the 2019/2020 season. She brought us an abundance of skill, experience, enthusiasm, and new music, and we thoroughly enjoyed working with her.

Tahirih is an actor, singer, music educator, choir conductor, and composer. She holds a Bachelor of Music from the University of Regina with a double major in Vocal Performance and Music History.

As a conductor and music educator, she conducts the Regent Park School of Music choirs in Regent Park and Jane and Finch, and has led the Nai Childrens Choir, Toronto World Unity Choir, Florivox Women’s Choir and Univox Choir. Over the years, Tahirih has sung professionally with The Nathaniel Dett Chorale, Elmer Iseler Singers, Sing! Festival Singers, the Black Creek Festival Chorus, and is a resident musician at First Unitarian. Tahirih teaches an ensemble singing course at the Center for Indigenous Theatre and is also a private voice teacher.

When she is not teaching or leading choirs, Tahirih works as an actor having performed at various theatres across Canada including the Stratford Shakespeare Festival, The Globe Theatre, Shakespeare in the Ruff, Factory Theatre, Tarragon Theatre, and Driftwood Theatre. Her current creative ventures have led her to playing the mandolin and merlin.

We’ve had some fabulous workshops with Gospel Music Specialist Clark Joseph, Gospel Singer/Composer Dr. Diane White-Clayton, local Singer/Songwriter Jennifer Foster and an outdoor Sing-along in High Park. We have just finished Hope, Echo’s 5th Pandemica Chorus video.
Echo is learning new ways to do what we love to do, on-line, which is to sing together in community.

Hope, Do Not Carry a Heavy Heart, Big Sky, Bird Song and Fount.
Have a look and listen! You can also see these on our YouTube channel.
