The Healey Willan Singers was originally formed as a youth choir to celebrate Dr. Willan’s 125th anniversary in 2005. Since 2007, the choir has reinvented itself into a women’s ensemble and has become one of the finest women’s ensembles in the city. Rehearsals run from September to April on Saturday mornings from 10:15am to 12:30pm. This coming season, the choir will present our annual Christmas concert in December and at the end of April with “Women and Songs V,” our biennial celebration of women’s composers and poets. The choir performs repertoire from Gregorian chants to contemporary new works, especially music by women and Canadian composers. Auditions are held throughout the year. Rehearsals and concerts are held at the Church of St. Martin-in-the-Fields, 151 Glenlake Avenue in Toronto’s west end.
