Alumnus Phillip Addis Performs in Carmina Burana

 

Our senior choir is excited to perform in Orff’s Carmina Burana alongside the Toronto Symphony Orchestra, the Toronto Mendelssohn Choir, and many talented soloists from June 21 to 24th. This performance will be particularly special to the Toronto Children’s Chorus as we sing with TCC alumnus, Phillip Addis, baritone.

Addis kindly answered all of our questions; from what his time was like as a TCC chorister to his incredible journey from choir member in Carmina Burana (early 1990s) to soloist (2017). Read on to find out more about one of this production’s featured performers.
