SEASON FINALE: The Resurrection - Guest Artists: Toronto Mendelssohn Choir
May 15, 2019
The Grammy-nominated Toronto Mendelssohn Choir, as one of Canada’s largest choral organizations, believes its role is to provide Canadian audiences the experience of the classical choral masterworks of the world.
Grand symphonic sound has been the Toronto Mendelssohn Choir’s trademark for over 125 years. Performing both sacred and secular repertoire, TMC choristers are committed to offering audiences authentic interpretation, clarity of expression and a profound emotional experience of some of the most important music ever composed. Concerts are exhilarating and uplifting celebrations of the triumphs, great and small, of the human spirit.
Through its performances and educational programs, the Toronto Mendelssohn Choir aspires to make choral masterworks available, accessible, and inspirational to all listeners in order to create a shared heritage of musical expression and appreciation.
The TMC includes a core of 20 professional singers. Currently this core is formed by 20 members of the Elora Singers. Starting in the 2019/20 season, the TMC will audition and retain its own professional core. The TMC organization also includes the Mendelssohn Singers, a 70-voice ensemble formed from the ranks of the TMC, giving us more flexibility in both performing venue and repertoire.
The mighty Mendelssohn will join the MSO in the Living Arts Centre on Saturday, May 25 for Mahler's massive second symphony, a performance that will see over 200 performers on stage! The concert will begin at 8pm. Ticket information can be found at: https://bit.ly/2W6qd52.
