On the eve prior to the first day of December, the threat of the first winter storm of the season could not deter the Beach community and music fans from filling the pews at the inaugural concert for the newly formed Toronto Beach Chorale held at Kingston Road United Church on Nov 30th.
It was a concert full of traditional favourites, including Cantata #140 – “Wachet Auf!” by J.S. Bach, and a Christmas suite of seasonal music by John Rutter. The chorale was conducted by Mervin Fick. Special guest soloists included Janet Obermeyer (soprano), Michael Downie (bass), Sean Clark (tenor) and Orchestra.
Congratulations “Toronto Beach Chorale” on your successful inaugural concert!!
