Etobicoke Centennial Choir (ECC) is an auditioned SATB community choir that welcomes choristers, audience members and volunteers from all walks of life, backgrounds, identities and experiences. We aspire to promote the art of choral singing and enrich the cultural life of our community through vibrant, diverse choral musical performances. We believe that choral singing fosters joy, harmony and camaraderie as individual singers raise their voices together in song.

ECC’s beloved holiday concert goes virtual

How can we keep from singing?

Etobicoke Centennial Choir’s annual holiday concert is a cherished seasonal tradition for our choristers and audiences. This year, we are bringing beautiful Christmas music directly to you, with a live-recorded concert filmed at Humber Valley United Church.

This free one-hour concert features French composer Camille Saint-Saëns’ Oratorio de Noël (Christmas Oratorio) for organ, choir and five soloists. Written when he was just 23 years old, his lush and lyrical music creates a sense of awe and wonder as the movements gradually build from solos to a quintet, with the full chorus intervening.

ECC’s gifted section leads will share the spotlight as featured soloists.

We will round out the concert with a festive selection of lovely and lively Christmas carols to help kindle the holiday spirit.

With joy and gratitude, we invite you to enjoy our musical offering!

The concert will be available for streaming on December 16 for one week through the following link:

Note: You do not have to be a Facebook subscriber to attend this event. While the concert is being offered free of charge, donations are welcome and much appreciated.

Looking Ahead

Mark your 2022 calendars! ECC is planning a grand return to performing for a live audience on Saturday April 9, with a celebratory concert featuring Beethoven’s dramatic Mass in C and the exciting, jazz-influenced Mass by Steve Dobrogosz. On June 11, Musica Borealis will showcase a wide range of gorgeous music from Canada and other northern climes.
