Reaching Up Reaching Out
RESOUND Choir is an auditioned mixed-voice community choir that seeks the highest quality of performance in contemporary and traditional choral repertoire. Located just east of Toronto, the choir seeks out opportunities to make meaningful contributions in our region – providing choral workshops and performance opportunities for singers, hiring early-career instrumentalists, soloists and conductors, premiering the works of Canadian composers, partnering with front-line community service organizations, and collaborating with dancers, visual artists and youth groups in the region.
Reaching Up. Reaching Out. RESOUND.

The lands RESOUND Choir is situated on are covered by the Williams Treaties and are the traditional territory of the Mississaugas, a branch of the greater Anishinaabeg Nation, including Algonquin, Ojibway, Odawa and Pottawatomi. These lands remain home to many Indigenous nations and peoples, with whom RESOUND Choir is thankful to share in friendship.
We acknowledge this land out of respect for the Indigenous nations who have cared for Turtle Island, also called North America, from before the arrival of settler peoples until this day. Most importantly, we acknowledge that the history of these lands has been tainted by poor treatment and a lack of friendship with the First Nations who call them home.
This history is something we are all affected by because we are all treaty people in Canada. We all have a shared history to reflect on, and each of us is affected by this history in different ways. Our past defines our present, but if we move forward as friends and allies, then it does not have to define our future.
