The Canadian Orpheus Male Choir (COMC) is an internationally known Canadian male voice choir of some 45 members from varied backgrounds, who have established a reputation as "men who love to sing". The COMC is a forum for men who want to improve their singing and who enjoy fellowship and giving back. The choir pursues artistic excellence and promotes civic pride among its members and in the community. These goals are achieved through practices, concerts and recordings.
The Choir was founded in 1977. Our repertoire is extensive and varied, and includes opera choruses, spirituals, popular tunes, songs from musicals, ballads and more. We have performed over 460 concerts in venues such as the National Arts Centre in Ottawa, Roy Thomson Hall in Toronto, St. Paul's Cathedral, Westminster Abbey, the Royal Festival Hall and Royal Albert Hall in London. Concert tours have taken the choir to the United States, Western Canada, the Maritime Provinces, Continental Europe, Britain and Ireland.
The COMC has performed with many guest artists, most notably the bass-baritone Bryn Terfel, violinist Martin Beaver, soprano Abigail Freeman, Scantily Plaid, tenor Aldo Filistad, the Blazing Fiddles, the Canadian Brass and the Central Band of the Canadian Armed Forces. The COMC has held fundraising concerts to support service clubs, churches and charities such as the Canadian Cancer Society, the Heart and Stroke Foundation, and The Hamilton Spectator Children’s Fund.
We are open to men ages 19+ of all voices and levels of music experience. There are no auditions and you don't have to be able to read music! COMC could be perfect for you if you like singing, enjoy a good challenge, want to collaborate with others and serve the community.
Come to a rehearsal any Monday between 7:30 and 10:00 p.m. For more information, email email@example.com

"I just wanted to say thank you to the COMC for two wonderful concerts. We had so many compliments this morning at church and everyone hopes you will come again. Ian and I had so much fun hosting you -- you always make us feel a part of the choir. Please give our best to the "men who love to sing"! "
