Do You Love to Sing?

Then we would love to have you join us!

As a result of the covid pandemic, we’ve changed how the choir operates for our Fall 2020 season.

Click here for more information about Fall 2020.

We have two terms per year: September to December and January to May, with new repertoire and a closing concert in each term. New members are welcome to join in either September or January. We take a break during the summer months.

We have additional fundraising events in different parts of Toronto, which have included special concerts, jazz nights, and dances. We also perform regularly at grassroots events in collaboration with other Toronto organizations.
 
These are the commitments you need to consider before joining:
  • attending Tuesday evenings rehearsals, 7-9pm and two Saturday rehearsals, 10am-12:30pm. Singers are asked to arrive at 6:50 so that everybody can get ready by the time the rehearsal starts.
  • attending the dress rehearsal (mandatory if you want to participate in the concert)
  • singing with us at our Concert

No audition required!

We ask members to contribute $175 for each session. This money goes towards
  • the cost of music,
  • honorariums for the Directors and guest artists,
  • commissioning music,
  • concert hall rentals,
  • and other expenses.

Singers who can not afford to pay this fee will NOT be turned away and will be welcome to contribute to ECHO’s fundraising in other ways!

Our rehearsals are scent-free – some of us are very sensitive.

Childcare is available on-site upon request.

Why We Sing

“My life is better when I have a standing weekly appointment to make art with friends. I like our repertoire, I love the rehearsal/performance space, and I am glad to be part of such a sustaining community.”

“I wanted to rediscover singing and loved the Echo concert I attended because a friend was singing. I feel it’s good for my brain and my peace of mind.”

“I sing with Echo for the joy of singing together in community.
It is an accessible, relaxed mix of all abilities, with a focus on social justice.”

“I started for the music, I’ve stayed because of the friendships and community that have developed within the choir. I also like the extra opportunities we have with workshops and performances outside of our regular concerts.”
