"My husband and I have attended Mendelssohn Choir concerts for over 30 years, and have always come away uplifted and impressed. We are happy to donate to the Choir, so we all can continue to hear stunning choral music beautifully produced.”
– TMC Concert Patron and CC Donor since 2007
Noel Edison


WE DID IT!

On behalf of the Toronto Mendelssohn Choir it is my great pleasure to thank the 208 donors who have collectively given $77,200 to this year’s Conductor’s Challenge campaign. We received generous gifts from friends and supporters who connect to the TMC in every possible way: donors, concert patrons, choristers and their family and friends, alumni, staff, Board members, subscribers, and workshop participants. This represents a 20 percent increase in the number of donors over last year. We attracted new supporters to the campaign, many donors increased the amount of their gifts over last year, and we welcomed eight new members to the Mendelssohn Circle. We are grateful to both our new donors and to those who have supported us over many years: THANK YOU!

Your gifts enable us to present concerts like the Mass in B Minor and they support our education and outreach programmes, such as our Apprentice Program, Singsation Saturdays, our pre-concert chats and concert podcasts, and our programs for emerging conductors. You can see all of the efforts that go into just one season in a series of pictures here.

Like all performing arts organizations, the TMC raises funds from multiple sources in support of our work. The Conductor’s Challenge campaign was launched in 2005 to enable the Toronto Mendelssohn Choir to continue to program symphonic choral works in each concert season, and it represents 65 percent of our annual donations revenue. Since then, hundreds of individuals who love what we do have donated over $475,000 to the TMC through the Conductor’s Challenge.

Whether you are a singer, a lover of choral music or a friend of the TMC, your gift, no matter the size, has helped us exceed this year’s goal, and made it possible for us to continue to champion choral music in Canada.

As always, you have my deepest appreciation,

Noel Edison Signature
