Symphonic Passion Chorus
Sparking joy in a choir of song
*You must be DSO Toronto Region eligible to receive adult services.
We welcome adults with autism spectrum disorder (ASD), Down syndrome, fetal alcohol spectrum disorder (FASD) and other intellectual or developmental disabilities to join our Symphonic Passion Chorus choir. It is a group of 25-30 participants led by clinical staff and volunteers, including instrumental accompanists. The main requirement is a love of singing; no musical experience is necessary.
The Chorus runs from September to December on Wednesdays from 5:00pm-6:30pm. We sing and use books with a combination of pictorial symbols and words to make the singing experience accessible. We aim to support our choir participants to experience a sense of belonging and to increase their self-esteem.
