The MCC Toronto Chancel Choir, affectionately known as The Choir, boasts an eclectic combination of singers, a true community of diverse individuals, whose love of music brings them together every week for rehearsals and services. Under the outstanding leadership of Diane Leah, The Choir is an integral part of Sunday morning worship at MCC Toronto.
Choir members are fully
dedicated to the Music Ministry, donating over a thousand volunteer hours in an
average month, singing within the church walls and outside them: highlights
include appearances at Pride services, the Olympic Torch Ceremony at Nathan
Phillips Square, where they also performed at the Cavalcade of Lights, and 98.1
CHFI. They were the featured choir at MCC General Conference in Acapulco in
2010 and were proud to participate in Jack Layton’s funeral in August 2011, as
well as the flag raising at World Pride in 2014. Members of the choir always
enjoy rising to a challenge, consistently committing to regular worship and
fundraising and outreach opportunities. They are still in recovery mode from
their busy Christmas season, including a successful concert, Lessons and Carols
service, and of course Christmas Eve at Roy Thomson Hall.
The Choir’s three CDs, House of Love, Connected: Songs for the Heart, and These Old Walls are available at the information desk in the social
hall, and online on iTunes.
