Welcome to Common Thread Community Chorus of Toronto!
OUR MISSION STATEMENT
Common Thread: Community Chorus of Toronto is a non-audition chorus which promotes a sense of community by performing joyful and empowering music. All voices are welcome! We believe that everyone can sing and that together we can make beautiful music. We sing music that celebrates the dignity of all people and their struggles to create a better world. We sing for recreation, for reverence, for learning and laughter, for struggle, for hope and for understanding. One of our goals is to encourage people to sing in their everyday lives. To that end we often invite our audience to sing along. We aim to “Put a song on people’s lips, and not just in their ears!”
Common Thread Community Chorus adopts the following statement as part of its foundational commitments:
CT acknowledges that, for thousands of years, these lands have been the traditional lands of the Huron-Wendat, the Seneca, and most recently the Mississaugas of the New Credit. CT also acknowledges that this territory remains the home of many indigenous people from across Turtle Island. CT members and supporters are grateful to be able to gather and sing here.
CT Kids: Fun and empowering songs, building a sense of belonging, respect for diversity and positive social change from a youth perspective. Click here for more information.
Stay tuned for our 2018 2019 Concert Season!

URGENT – CT CHORUS NEEDS ADDED MALE VOICES (especially bass singers)
This is CT’s 20th season, during which we will celebrate our 2 decades of singing. Even so, we find ourselves a few basses short of a full choir. To perform with a well balanced sound, including songs we will sing with special guests Eve Goldberg and Pat Humphries, we must urgently increase the numbers of bass singers.
YOU CAN HELP IF:
as a male, you want to join the choir yourself;
you send this urgent request to a male friend, neighbour or contact who may want to sing with CT;
you post this message in community spaces (i.e. YMCA men’s changeroom notice boards) frequented by men; or
you send this message to groups with men who may want to sing with CT.
Interested individuals can email email@example.com. The just need to provide their name, email address and phone number with a note indicating that they want to sing in the Bass Section.
Those interested can also sign up using the Common Thread Chorus website. They can just fill in the form at the Sing With Us tab at http://commonthreadchorus.ca/. (On the website form they will mark XX in front of their name, so CT can identify the forms related this special request.)
NOTE: If, after a review by our conductor, your voice turns out to be tenor, CT will welcome you in that voice section.
The deadline for joining CT is Oct. 15, 2018, so act soon!
