Welcome to Tone Cluster – quite a queer choir
Tone Cluster is a 35-voice auditioned choir for queer people and their allies based in Canada’s capital city, Ottawa, Ontario. We pride ourselves on creating a queer-positive environment where singers can be themselves while striving for choral excellence.
Our core values include creativity, fun, excellence, a caring community, diversity and spirit. Our repertoire reflects our values and is wide-ranging and eclectic, from madrigals to Manhattan Transfer arrangements by way of world music and contemporary Canadiana. The choir also performs original choral works commissioned by the choir from Canadian composers.
Tone Cluster is a proud “out” choir! We make sure that our audiences are aware of our point of view when we sing… and we trust that you, as a queer singer or straight ally, are proud to support a queer choir.
Although the COVID-19 situation has forced us into a virtual environment for the time being, check out Our Season page regularly for updates on our planned virtual activities.
If you might be interested in singing with us, we’d love it if you auditioned for us in the Fall. We also have auditions at other times throughout the year – for more information, please visit our Audition page.
If you want to volunteer, make a donation or advertise with us, we truly appreciate your support. Please visit our Support Us page. Tone Cluster now has a full sponsorship program. For more information, please see the Sponsor Us page.
