Local Vocals is Mimico Children’s Choir’s FUN-draising women’s community choir. It’s a sessional (usually 6-week) pop-up group that is fun, social and ever so musical! Local Vocals perform in the Children’s Choir’s main concerts when we are in session. New members of all abilities are welcome for every session – there is no audition. Fun, varied and often familiar repertoire is chosen in advance of each session, and practice tracks are usually made available for review at home between rehearsals.
Our Fall 2018 session of Local Vocals will start in mid-late October for six weeks , culminating in the Winter Concert with Mimico Children’s Choir in December (date TBA). Tuesday night rehearsals will again be at Mimico Baptist Church (80 Hillside Ave, near Mimico Ave and Royal York).
Please SIGN UP for our mailing list to be notified when registration opens for this and future sessions:
We will need a minimum of 21 participants committed and paid by September 30th to cover costs and move forward with the Fall session.
Fee will be $60 on or before Sept 30, or $70 after Sept 30.

And as always please share and invite your friends, family and neighbours to join us!
Look forward to our Winter Sing and hope you can make it out to sing with us this time round – the last three sessions have been so much fun! Here’s a little taste from our first session, just to get you in the mood!
