85 Queen: Choir! Choir! Choir!

7:00 PM - 9:00 PM
Central Library
Lounge

***THANK YOU FOR YOUR INTEREST. THIS EVENT IS SOLD OUT***

Presented with Centre In The Square

Join us Thursday October 4th for a FREE concert featuring Toronto's Choir! Choir! Choir! 

Choir! Choir! Choir! is the international singing phenomenon that exemplifies the best of creativity, collaboration, and community-building. Led by creative directors Nobu Adilman and Daveed Goldman, the duo take a non-traditional approach; there are no auditions, and the audience is the choir. Equal parts singing, comedy, and community-building, the night unfolds like a dream: you get a lyric sheet at the door, DaBu teach you the vocal arrangement, and a video is recorded. It’s interactive theatre. It’s stand up comedy. It’s a concert like you’ve never seen before. 

Founded in 2011, Choir! Choir! Choir! has amassed a dedicated and passionate community of singers and a thriving international fan base on YouTube. The group has performed with renowned artists such as Patti Smith, Tegan and Sara, and Rufus Wainwright, and onstage at New York’s Carnegie Hall and Radio City Music Hall with the likes of Debbie Harry and The Flaming Lips. 

Registration required and opens Friday, August 17 at 10am
