Chorale, a new Canadian professional chamber choir dedicated to the creation and performance of Afrocentric music of all styles - classical, spiritual, gospel, jazz, folk and blues - is a new and exciting addition to the vibrant Toronto choral scene. Founder-conductor Brainerd Blyden-Taylor named the group after African-Canadian composer, R. Nathaniel Dett (1882-1943), who energetically promoted an awareness of the ~NII.Ir.:tllll•ll Black North American musical heritage. While the choir will be a tribute to Dett it will also fill the need, in Blyden­ Taylor's words, to "honour and promote Afrocentric composers and their choral music in Canada." The choir will fulfil that mandate, not only by performing both in Toronto and on tour, but also with an active music commissioning programme, workshops, lecture-demonstrations and master classes. While the choir will specialize .. ·-· -· in Afrocentric music, its · membership is not limited to black singers. Blyden-Taylor points out with some amusement that though his skin-colour is black he is in fact half Scottish, and the choir will be open to singers of all races. The important thing is that they be able to handle the range of styles and that they can sightread.
