That Choir relies 100% for it’s funding from the  donations of our audience base and people like you – people that have a deep appreciation for creation, the arts, and choral music.

Our first album will include works by Anton Bruchner, Franz Biebl, Eric Whitacre and Moses Hogan – to name a few.

About That Choir

Now in its 3rd year, That Choir combines a high level of performance with a deep love of the choral art as one of Toronto’s newest choral groups. That Choir was formed in the spring of 2008 by Craig Pike and 14 of his actor friends who wanted to create and share a  music experience together. That Choir now brings together over 25 members with diverse backgrounds in work and study, and a mixture of trained and untrained voices. New Canadian artists are important for That Choir to nurture and have already performed new works by J. Scott Brubacher as well as Reza Jacobs in December 2010. Also in December of 2010, That Choir invited Canadian Theatre Artist Nancy Palk to read Dylan Thomas’s ” A Child’s Christmas in Wales” as part of That Choir Carols – an annual celebration of the Holidays. 

In May of 2011, That Choir toured to Niagara on the Lake, Ontario with it’s program That Choir – Water Night. 

That Choir is quickly becoming well known for its a cappella repertoire of many styles and periods with a strong focus on storytelling.
