The Trinity-St. Paul’s United Church choir has about 30 members. Many of us are, or have been, students in the Faculty of Music at the University of Toronto; the rest are from all walks of life. We share an ability to read music, the joy of singing, and a belief in music as a central part of worship.
The choir practices Thursdays from 7 to 9 p.m. and Sundays at 9:30 a.m. from September to mid-June. Every year we sing one or two major works, and in mid-December we present Carols by Candlelight.
