Don't Stop Me Now: Songs of Resilience

Many thanks to all those who took the time to watch Tone Cluster’s virtual concert “Don't Stop Me Now: Songs of Resilience". The concert was available on our YouTube channel from March 8 to 22, 2021 and is no longer available.

While it was available, we received over 1250 views. Our request for donations during the concert was answered generously by Tone Cluster supporters.

What a positive way to celebrate our resilience after a full year of COVID-19.

Tone Cluster has one more virtual concert this season.  Make Peace With It will premiere on June 7 and feature Ontario singer-songwriter Jadea Kelly.

On behalf of Tone Cluster and our Artistic Director (Virtual), Deirdre Kellerman, thank you for your support and we look forward to continuing to entertain you!

Tone Cluster-quite a queer choir

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.
