Mendelssohn SingersChoral Gems through the Ages
Noel Edison, conductor
David Briggs, organ
The 70-voice Mendelssohn Singers is formed from the ranks of the much larger (150-voice) Toronto Mendelssohn Choir whose formidable history goes back more than 100 years. The Singers made their debut in 2003 and have since made regular guest appearances with the Toronto Symphony Orchestra and many other acclaimed ensembles. Noel Edison is the conductor for both the Toronto Mendelssohn Choir and Mendelssohn Singers as well as the 20-voice Elora Festival Singers, who form the core of the two larger choirs.
Roy Thomson Hall's free noon-hour concert series celebrates the artistry of outstanding choral ensembles and organists, and spotlights the magnificent Gabriel Kney pipe organ. The community is invited to enjoy an hour of beautiful music in the splendour of this acoustically superb venue.
