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.
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.
Sing for Joy is a member of the Ubuntu Choir Network, a global community of singing groups 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 justice.
