Do I have to fundraise?
As a part of the Toronto Children’s Chorus, a charitable organization, the Toronto Youth Choir has exclusive access to many special workshops and experts through the organization’s larger program. All choristers across the Chorus participate in an annual fundraising campaign called Sing Loo! to support our world-renown program. Toronto Youth Choir choristers are part of this campaign and are expected to individually fundraise $150 for the Chorus. Funds from this campaign benefit every singer at the Chorus. Learn more about Sing Loo! here.

For those who would like to go on tour with the TYC, there is an additional tour fee still in development. Please note the tour is not included in the $175 tuition fee.
