The Toronto Beaches Children’s Chorus was founded in 2006 by artistic director Bronwen Low.
The choir provides both vocal and dramatic training, in a fun and supportive environment. The children learn a variety of music from all different genres, and enjoy bi-weekly drama classes with actor & teacher Joanne Mitchell. Jessica Riley, Anna Madgett & Michael Gomiega round off the artistic staff!
The Choir has five levels of instruction. We are now accepting new registrations for our January start!
