Season Subscription 2019-2020

In News by Susan Murphy

We think November deserves something special. That’s why Tone Cluster—quite a queer choir is including 4 shows for the price of 3 in our Special Season Ticket bundle: all of our concerts plus Show Tune Showdown! An opportunity you won’t want to miss!

This season’s offering includes:

Quiet No More: the Canadian premiere of this stirring, 8 movement piece commemorating the 50th anniversary of Stonewall, plus other uplifting, affirming and rousing repertoire.  Special guest TotoToo Theatre lends their talent to Tone Cluster for a dynamic and moving performance. This is a show to encourage you to take up space and for our music and our message to take up space. So too we are helping community artists take up space, at Studio 507’s art exhibit, held in conjunction with our concert.

Centretown United Church (507 Bank St) 
2019 November 23 at 7:30 pm.
Doors open at 6:00 pm for an art show preview and at 7:00 pm for the concert.

“Gay Poets’ Society”, which will feature the words of the queer community as well as commissioned music and our own local poets.  One of the great joys of Tone Cluster is creating new music and sharing it with you. These common human messages provide shared ground that everyone can relate to. Let yourself be carried away by beautiful music and the feeling of community connection: a perfect fit for a Saturday in March.

Catch a sneak peek at our programme for GALA Festival 2020 in Minneapolis as we export our queer Canadian values a place that badly needs them. A great dose of joy and hope for a summer night out with special guest Rainbow Chorus of Waterloo Wellington.
