Toronto Children's Chorus Presents Free Community Concert at The Fairmont Royal York Hotel

The Toronto Children’s Chorus, in partnership with The Fairmont Royal York hotel, presents Sing Loo!, a free, four-hour long concert, in the festively decorated grand lobby of the hotel, 100 Front St W, on Sunday, November 28, 2010, 12 – 4 p.m. Sing Loo! is a pledge-driven sing-a-thon that raises money for the Chorus and is open to the community. The name, Sing Loo!, originates from the Toronto Children’s Chorus tradition in which someone sings the word “loo!” on a sustained pitch and other voices quickly join in unison so that the attention of the crowd is instantly captured.
This is the third annual Sing Loo! fundraiser and promises to be an enjoyable event for the entire family. The concert will feature performances by all five Training Choirs, the Main Choir, members of the Toronto Children’s Chorus’ alumni, guest artists and special hosts. Members of the community are invited to join the Toronto Children’s Chorus for a few minutes - or a few hours! - of exceptional choral music and will have a chance to support the choir through donations or pledges. The money collected through Sing Loo! will not only support an important charitable organization serving children and youth but also an exciting new community event that promises to become a wonderful Toronto tradition.

The Toronto Children’s Chorus is recognized as one of the world’s leading treble choirs. Founded 33 years ago by Jean Ashworth Bartle, the Toronto Children’s Chorus is celebrating its fourth concert season under the leadership of Artistic Director Elise Bradley.
