WHAT IS CHOIR?
Daveed Goldman and Nobu Adilman (AKA “DaBu”) started Choir! Choir! Choir! In Toronto as a weekly drop-in singing event in February 2011. Equal parts singing, comedy, and community-building, the duo now travel around the world to bring friends, foes, and strangers together to sing the greatest songs of all time. All you have to do is show up and they’ll teach you your parts!
Check “shows” to see where they’re going to be next. Go to “how to join” to sign up for email or Facebook updates. Depending on where you live, they have options so you get the information you need! Daveed and Nobu also lead corporate team-building sessions where they get everyone to let down their guard and sing their hearts out! Visit the “Hire The Choir!” page to find out more.

Choir! has performed in bars, at festivals, and on big stages around the world including: Carnegie Hall, Radio City Music Hall, Massey Hall, Lincoln Center, The Juno Awards, Joe’s Pub, Art Gallery of Ontario, Parliament Hill in Ottawa, National Arts Centre, Luminato Festival, at TEDx Toronto, the Polaris Music Prize Gala and more.

In 2016, the Choir! Choir! Choir! Foundation was launched (in association with the Toronto Foundation) to formalize their deep commitment to fundraising activities. Their 2015 “C!C!C! Sings for Syria” campaign raised $70,000 and sponsored two families to Toronto. Their 2016 “25 days of Charity! Charity! Charity!” campaign raised $50,000 for 25 local, national and international organizations. Donate here!
