The Hart House Chorus is a 50-voice choir auditioned from musically talented students, faculty and alumni of the University of Toronto. Since its inception in 1972 as a reincarnation of the long-standing men’s Glee Club, the chorus has maintained a reputation for the highest standard of performance locally, nationally and abroad. In 1993, the chorus was a finalist in the Large Choir category of the CBC Radio Competition for Amateur Choirs and in 2002, it was featured in the University of Toronto’s first reading of Charles Dickens’ A Christmas Carol. In addition to other engagements, the chorus performs twice annually in the Great Hall at Hart House.
The Hart House Chorus is active in the international choral community, having hosted choirs from the United States, Austria and Finland, and toured to various countries in Europe. Recently, the Hart House Chorus toured to Belgium to represent Canada in the 1000 Voices for Peace festival, which commemorated 100 years since the start of World War I.
