Singsation Saturday: February 12th Choral Workshop

The Toronto Mendelssohn Choir (TMC) presents Singsation Saturdays, choral workshops where anyone who loves to sing is invited to join with noted local conductors, TMC choristers and other singers to sing a variety of works from the choral repertoire. Musical scores are available for singers to borrow during the workshop.  During the 2009-10 season, between 70 and 100 singers from across Toronto joined their voices together at each Singsation event.
