A NIGHT TO REMEMBER! December 4, 2021

It’s a wrap! What a fantastic concert we had – a jubilant evening of sharing beautiful music of the season. With thanks to our 20 instrumentalists, the Cantabile Choir of Young Voices Toronto and our full and enthusiastic audience for making it a festive event to remember.

ECC’s beloved holiday concert went virtual!

Etobicoke Centennial Choir’s first-ever virtual concert, entitled “How can we keep from singing?,” was recorded live at Humber Valley United Church on December 4, and debuted online December 16. In addition to performing for our dedicated followers, we reached new audiences both regionally and around the globe, including listeners in the United States, Europe, South Africa, Australia and New Zealand! The reviews have been glowing, praising both the quality of the performance and the production.  We are proud of the results of this rewarding new venture.

The concert remains available to view free of charge:

Etobicoke Centennial Choir in the Globe and Mail

Freelance journalist Ben Mussett interviewed ECC choristers and music director Henry Renglich for his outstanding feature article on a choir’s experience during the Covid pandemic. The article was published in the Globe and Mail online on December 8, and in print in the Arts and Leisure section on Saturday, December 11. In addition to acknowledging the challenges and disappointments of the past two years, he beautifully conveys the passion that choristers have for singing and making music together. The result is an uplifting article that highlights our efforts and commitment to keep on singing!
