CCOC is moving to St. Clement's Church
In 2018, First Unitarian notified us that it has been sold for redevelopment. While a final date wasn’t provided, we proactively began a search to determine a suitable location.
We found a wonderful new home at St. Clement's Anglican Church at 70 St. Clement's Avenue in midtown Toronto!
With air-conditioning, a large gathering space for families to wait, fully accessible spaces, paid parking and street parking close by, and with coffee shops in close walking distance....it's our opportunity to build a bigger and better CCOC community.
We are looking forward to welcoming you to our new home, once we can do so in a safe and socially-distanced manner!

We're so excited to announce that we've been nominated for the second year in a row, for Outstanding Performance by an Ensemble at the 2020 Dora Awards. Last year, it was for The Snow Queen, and this year, it was for our PC Chorus' participation in the Canadian Opera Company's Hansel & Gretel.
Congratulations to Teri Dunn and our PC Choristers!

ALICE IN WONDERLAND POSTPONED
Dear CCOC families and supporters,
The CCOC leadership team is sad to confirm that the upcoming performances of Alice in Wonderland have been postponed indefinitely.
We are working with all of our collaborators to determine when and if we can present this wonderful opera in the near future. Updates will be provided as they become available. The health of our choristers, artists, and audiences are most important to us, but we still can't help but feel disappointed for our choristers who have worked so incredibly hard since the end of January on preparing their roles.
We look forward to gathering again when it is safe to do so, and celebrate the incredible voices of our young singers!
CCOC COVID-19 UPDATE
Following the recent decisions by government and school boards, we are suspending all CCOC rehearsals until April 6, including those for "Alice in Wonderland".
Our Junior Choruses' production of "The Earth Sings" and our Junior Division Open House will be rescheduled to later in the spring and we will provide new dates as soon as possible.
We are so very grateful for your co-operation and patience during this uncertain time. We are committed to keeping our CCOC families safe and do our part to help minimize local transmission within our community.
Keep singing and we'll see you soon!
