Sing With Us

Sing for Joy begins a new 12-week season in the New Year, starting the third week of January. We have two locations to choose from, in the east and central parts of Toronto. At the end of our 12-week season, we celebrate with a final event called The Big Sing!

 

In each session, you will…

  • Learn joyful, diverse, easy-to-memorize songs
  • Connect with your singing community through a shared joy of song
  • Build confidence in your voice in a welcoming, supportive space
  • Release the stress of your long day and work week
  • Exercise your body and mind through the practice of group singing
  • Build memory retention through oral tradition singing
  • Enjoy a fun, relaxed, and accepting environment

 

What else do you get as part of our community?

  • Monthly community events, potluck dinner, and movie nights
  • Participation at our Big Sing event at the end of each season
  • Toronto Street Singing and flash mob events
  • First-priority sign up and discounts on special events

Our Tuesday session has been held in the historic building of St. Matthew’s Clubhouse, in Riverdale Park. Sadly, we have just been informed by the City of Toronto, which manages the facility, that renovations will be taking place in the New Year. We are looking at a number of different locations in Riverdale to hold our choir, and should know shortly where we will be meeting.

Our Wednesday session meets at the Lotus Yoga Centre in the Annex. Located on Harbord Street, next to the Almond Butterfly bakery, this location is a short streetcar ride or walk from Spadina subway station. There is free parking on the side streets, as well as bicycle lanes out front.
