One of the most exciting new initiatives at McLaughlin College is the establishment of a McLaughlin College Community Choir, the only “Community Choir” at York University. This is not the first choir that has been based at McLaughlin College since the College was founded in 1968. There have been a number of choirs based at McLaughlin College over its more than 50-year history, but, never a “Community Choir,” that is open to all members of McLaughlin College and York University. All are welcomed to join our Community Choir and get engaged in a highly enjoyable and fun activity. There are no auditions and no previous musical experience is necessary.
Our Community Choir is composed of faculty, staff, Fellows and, of course, students, at York University. The wide range of musical and life experiences of its choristers is what makes MCCC unique and a vibrant part of the community. There are currently about thirty members, but there is always room for more. So, now is your opportunity to participate in a highly enjoyable and most pleasurable activity. If you have ever wanted to sing in a choir, here is your chance.
The McLaughlin College Community Choir (MCCC) holds its rehearsals on Wednesdays in the Fall and Winter Terms during the academic year, from 4:30 pm to 6:00 pm, in the McLaughlin College Senior Common Room, 140 McLaughlin College. The MCCC is led by the highly talented and accomplished Sebastian Moreno, who has conducted and directed many choirs over the years. Choir Director Moreno, is, in fact, a York University product. He completed his undergraduate studies in music at York University and is currently completing his Master’s degree at the Department of Music right here at York University. Sebastian is also an organist and active member of the Royal Canadian College of Organists. His love of music, conducting, and managing a choir is unsurpassed. We are very fortunate, indeed, to have him as our founding Choir Director.
