1) Exceptional Education
TCC choristers rehearsing at our annual Main Choir music camp.
We take your child’s love of singing and provide an exceptional music education. They will acquire superior musical skills that include sight-singing, ear-training, and theory; in addition to performing a vast and varied repertoire. The Chorus continues to make a unique contribution to the international model of children’s choirs, one that has been duplicated the world over. The Chorus consists of six choirs— four levels within the training choir programme, the main choir and a youth choir. These four training choirs provide a programme of sequentially developed skills, ultimately preparing choristers for admission into the main performing choir of the Chorus. The Chorus also includes a Kindernotes programme for children aged 3-6, and a Choral Academy, featuring solo vocal classes and Royal Conservatory of Music theory and history classes.
2) Exceptional Performance
The TCC Holiday concert takes place every year at Roy Thomson Hall.
The Toronto Children’s Chorus is a leader in the world of children’s choirs. Founded in 1978, the Chorus has performed at revered venues such as the Musikverein, Carnegie Hall, the Kennedy Center, and Royal Albert Hall with internationally celebrated conductors. The Chorus also presents an annual concert season. Choristers in all choir levels benefit from the experience of performing in some of Toronto’s professional venues such as Roy Thomson Hall and Toronto Centre for the Arts. “Each time the TCC performs with the Toronto Symphony, I am struck by the maturity of their sound. The children are incredibly disciplined with a warmth and richness rarely heard in children’s choirs.” — Peter Oundjian, Music Director, Toronto Symphony Orchestra
3) Exceptional Experience

Research has proven the undeniable benefits of music-making on children’s cognition, self-esteem, and academic ability. Become members of an expansive network of caring and dedicated parents, children, alumni, and volunteers. You will make life-long friends! “The fact that children can make beautiful music is less significant than the fact that music can make beautiful children.” — Cheryl Lavender, Music Educator, Composer, and Author
