Toronto Mendelssohn Choir celebrates 120 years

Toronto, 1894: the last horse-drawn streetcar made its run in Toronto; Massey Hall was built; and the Toronto Mendelssohn Choir was founded, presenting its first concert in 1895. Throughout its 120-year history, and under the leadership of seven renowned conductors, the Choir has been acclaimed for its stunning performances of major choral repertoire and for its important role in the life of choral music in Canada.

From its founding, the Choir has been a leader in performance excellence and musical interpretation.  In response to the challenges of the 21st century, the Choir has added new programs intended to bring new musicians and new audiences to choral music, including webcasts, an apprentice program for young choristers, and a symposium for emerging conductors from across North America.
