JOIN RESOUND CHOIR
RESOUND is Durham Region’s newest contemporary-classical choir. Founded in 2019, the choir has mandates of excellence in choral performance and meaningful community outreach. Our outreach component is comprised of premiering 4-part arrangements of emerging composers, creating community with singers across the Region by singing large choral works together with an orchestra, and working with front-line community service organizations to raise awareness and support of their work. We are a registered charity with a very active Board. Our Artistic Director, Thomas Burton, has a Master of Music degree in Choral Conducting from the University of Michigan and has received numerous prestigious music awards. Join RESOUND CHOIR NOW!
