The Amadeus Choir of Greater Toronto is celebrating 50 years of enlivening the Toronto arts landscape through energetic performances, unexpected programming and artistic collaborations that redefine the boundaries of traditional choral music. As we reflect on our five decades of artistic excellence, we recognize that it has only been made possible through the dedication of our community. Starting with our choir members, volunteers, and staff, and rippling out to our audiences, donors, sponsors and the public, The Amadeus Choir has become a vital thread of connection in the cultural tapestry of Greater Toronto and beyond.
Led by Artistic Director Kathleen Allan, the Choir champions the best of choral music and premieres works of Canadian and international composers through a self-produced Toronto concert series, guest performances, and special events. The Amadeus Choir regularly commissions work from high-profile and emerging Canadian composers and recently established the Choral Creation Lab, a residency for composers and poets to co-create original works.
We are proud of our commitment to educate the next generation of choral musicians by providing workshops for conductors, composers, and students. In 2019, we established the Emerging Canadian Voices ensemble of eight young professional singers who take on leadership positions within the choir and receive career mentorship.
Throughout our 50-year history, the Amadeus Choir has received numerous awards and has become well-known across Toronto and beyond through tours, festivals, recordings, radio broadcasts, and collaborations with professional performing arts organisations.
