Tone Cluster is a member of GALA Choruses, a US-based not-for-profit organization serving the LGBTQ choral movement with a mission to support LGBTQ choruses as we change our world through song. Tone Cluster is also a member of Choirs Ontario, a not-for-profit arts service organization dedicated to the promotion and celebration of choral music in Ontario.

Each season, the choir participates in festivals and community events. In 2013/14 we sang at the Mosaik Festival and at the Unison Festival in Ottawa. We have sung at events hosted by Pink Triangle Services, EGALE Canada, Canadians for Equal Marriage, and Bruce House. In the past few seasons Tone Cluster has been a regular feature of:

  • Capital Pride  — we participate in the parade and have a booth
  • The AIDS Walk for Life Ottawa — a walk in support of local community organizations that provide HIV/AIDS related services where Tone Cluster had been in the top ten fundraisers
  • World Aids Day Service — an annual church service to raise awareness of HIV/AIDS around the world
