Ontario Physicians Choir
The Online Community
We recognize the significance of the online forum to meet, connect and sing together, and to provide an alternative way to maintain the relationships with our members.
For the first two years of the pandemic, the choir converted to weekly online rehearsals. This led to a growth of our membership beyond the city of Toronto. A number of physicians from outside GTA (such as Ottawa, Port Perry, Kingston) joined our community of choristers.
We also produced a number of video and audio recordings of our performances which have been shared widely among friends and families and also at national medical conferences.
The Ontario Physicians Choir meets on Tuesday 7:15pm to 9:30pm on Zoom to sing a variety of musical selections, including popular song requests from members.
Each week, the second hour is dedicated to sectionals (for each Soprano, Alto, Tenor, Bass) in order to prepare for virtual choir recording project(s).
Members of the online choir have the opportunity to join the Toronto Physicians Choir in person at the end of session performance and at other special events TBD.
Fees are $325 for Physicians, $30 for Residents/Fellows, free for Medical Students.
Members of the Ontario Physicians Choir can opt to attend in-person rehearsals with the Toronto Physicians Choir for an additional drop-in fee ($30 each). Pre-registration is required.
The fall session is 15 weeks long and runs from January 17th-April 25th 2023
