Willowdale Baptist Church
15 Olive Ave
North York, ON M2N 4N4
The church is just East of Yonge St and one block south of Finch Avenue. You can enter the church parking lot from Holmes Ave, one street south of Olive Ave. Please enter the church via the double doors on the north end of the building. You'll find a doorbell to the left of the doors that you can ring to gain entry.
The chorus generally takes a break from rehearsals during the month of July and August, and a brief break during the end of December. Before you come out, please check with us to be sure we are rehearsing that particular week. You can check our calendar on our Events page, or contact us using firstname.lastname@example.org. We don't want to have a visitor come by to find that we've taken a week off!
Becoming a Member
If you want to learn more about making the commitment to join the Toronto Northern Lights, come out to a rehearsal and be sure to talk with someone from our music team. You don't have to live in Toronto to join the chapter. Only about a third of our members live in town. The rest travel from far and wide to take part in weekly rehearsals.
Auditions for the chorus take place year round whenever the chorus is rehearsing. Members interested in auditioning are assigned two songs from the chorus repertoire, and are given about two weeks to learn both before performing them in a quartet for members of the chorus music team. In addition, prospective members will do a visual audition for members of our performance team to gauge their ability to perform basic choreography and visual engagement.
For more info on becoming a member, please come out to a rehearsal and visit us. We'd love to see you!
