The Annex Singers of Toronto, now in its 40th season, is a spirited, auditioned choir with an eclectic repertoire spanning seven centuries. Under the dynamic and creative leadership of artistic director Maria Case, the choir performs three programs each season, collaborating with professional vocalists, instrumentalists and ensembles. Recent performances include Poulenc’s Gloria, Dobrogosz’s Jazz Mass, Mozart’s Great Mass in C Minor, and the acclaimed original choral drama December Diaries. The Annex Chamber Choir, a smaller ensemble drawn from the main choir, is dedicated to presenting gems from the chamber repertoire. We offer choral development workshops led by some of Toronto’s most innovative musical coaches and clinicians, engage in community outreach, and encourage young singers with a sponsorship program.
In the 2019/20 season, we will present three concerts: “Winter Light” (December 14); “Carmina Burana: Sacred and Profane” (April 18); and “This Shining Night” (May 30). We rehearse Monday evenings at St. Thomas’s Anglican Church (383 Huron St.) and perform at Grace Church on-the-Hill and St. Andrew’s United Church. Experienced singers who wish to audition, please contact our membership coordinator.
