TMC History Tidbits – celebrating 125 years

We’re looking back at our storied history as we get ready for our Gala Concert on October 20, 2019 with the TSO to celebrate our 125th anniversary.

The Toronto Mendelssohn Choir was founded in 1894 by Augustus Stephen Vogt and has been part of the Toronto and Canadian choral scene ever since.

Follow us on social media at @TMChoir or visit this page for weekly stories – each Monday we’ll post #MusicMonday items about the music we’ve sung and commissioned; and on Thursdays we’ll post #ThrowbackThursday items about places, people and events we’ve been involved with over the years.

We’d also love to hear about your memories of the TMC. Send an email to
