The MCCToronto Choir is the Chancel Choir for the Metropolitan Community Church of Toronto, located at 115 Simpson Avenue.
The Choir is an integral part of the church community offering their voices at both Sunday Services, 9 am and 11 am.
The Choir has grown into a formidable group of talented vocalists under the leadership of Music Director, Diane Leah. The Choir has approximately 50 members.
Their musical style is eclectic, and Sunday Services incorporate both traditional hymns and contemporary music to suit all of the over 550 congregants that attend weekly.
The Choir’s voices are not confined to the walls of the church however. The Choir performs at many different functions throughout each year, and they grow to include non-regular members and become known as The Festival Choir for such performances, including Church on The Street during Pride Toronto Festivities, and The Metropolitan Community Church of Toronto’s Annual Christmas Eve Service at Roy Thomson Hall.
Occasionally the choir is accompanied by additional musicians during Sunday Service including Tom Jestadt – drums.
Every week The Choir welcomes guest soloists to sing during the Service. Past guests have included:
Louise Pitre, Julie Michels, Stephanie Martin, Thom Allison, Jackie Richardson, Billy Newton Davis, Mark Cassius, Mary McCandless, Alana Bridgewater, Maria Piazza, Cindy Church, Quartette and others.
