Thirty-five years ago in 'Toronto the choral scene consisted of a variety of · church, school and college choirs, the Toronto Mendelssohn Choir and the newly-formed Orpheus Choir. Now the choral scene has burgeoned, with a couple of hundred choirs in Toronto. This has all occurred quietly and gradually, without loud report; a quiet miracle, representing the vision, commitment, labour and love of thousands of people. Two anniversaries this month lend a little perspective. The Toronto Mendelssohn Youth Choir has just reached its twentyfirst birthday, but remains, of course, as young as ever. And the Orpheus Choir of Toronto celebrates its thirty-fifth --a choir truly in its prime. (More on both in Concert Notes, page 6.) How fitting in this context that our cover tips the hat to another choir, the Canadian Children's Opera Chorus, dedicated to setting our very young on the choral path--a path, we can safely say with many more points of interest now than thirty five years ago.
