Welcome to Sing for Joy!

Sing for Joy is an all-inclusive community choir in the City of Toronto, that gathers each week for the pure joy of singing together. We welcome all voices, and require no singing experience ~ just a heartfelt desire to sing with others in harmony. We sing for the pleasure and delight it gives us, in an atmosphere that is fun, relaxed, and accepting. We have two locations to choose from, in the east and west parts of Toronto.

Songs

Sing for Joy is unique from traditional choirs in that we don’t use sheet music or written words. Our songs are learned in the oral tradition of call-and-response, drawing from many cultures and backgrounds. They reflect a diversity of roots, origins, and inspirations, bringing us home to our most original ways of being together in community. We choose songs that you can weave into the rhythm of your daily life, and take home to share with your loved ones.

Community

Sing for Joy is a member of the Ubuntu Choir Network, a global community of choirs who believe that the joy of singing is a universal birthright, and that together, regardless of musical background, we can help improve the world by joining voices in song. Ubuntu is a Zulu word, meaning “I am because we are”. In this spirit, Ubuntu choirs seek to create a world in which we listen deeply to those around us, celebrate diversity, trust in our voices and bring them forward on behalf of harmony, peace, and beauty.

I am a shy person and didn’t know that I could sing. Mila made me feel so welcome and comfortable, I was able to let go and sing with all my heart. I’m now sharing these songs with my family. ~ Roula Ouroumov
As a first time participant, I had a delightful time. Mila creates a fun, safe environment for singing together. Using call and response, it's easy to participate and learn new songs. ~ Michael Sahota
Mila is a gifted guide. She helps people get in touch with that inner voice that we all have. I felt so fulfilled when I left each night, I kept humming for days! ~ Ryan Patrick
Sing for Joy had another great night this week. We learned all new songs, and were singing in 3-part harmony with some of them. If you are looking for more joy in your life, this is the place and Mila can lead the way! ~ Kate Martin
