Volume 24 No 8 | May 2019 April 5, 2019, Nathan Phillips Square, Toronto CHOIR!CHOIR!CHOIR! is a fun, inclusive, no-commitment choir who meet two evenings a week at Clinton’s Tavern in Toronto. Led by Nobu Adilman and guitarist Daveed Goldman (AKA “DaBu”) they also tour, fundraise and generally make music to express both collective grief and celebration. When the choir invited the public to come and sing The Beatles’ Here Comes the Sun to launch The Canadian Cancer Society’s Daffodil Campaign, The WholeNote’s Kevin King was there: “A fantastic event and experience to be there photographing it; surrounded by so many smiling faces and joyous voices. The sun itself had been a bit shy that day but these singers managed to bring the sunshine with them!” An additional photo of the CHOiR!CHOiR!CHOiR! event appears on the cover of our Canary Pages (page C1). A recording of the event can be found on the C!C!C! Facebook page.
