Oriana Women's Choir


Business No: 119248961RR0001

Oriana Women's Choir explores the possibilities in choral music for the female voice, promoting Canadian composers and musicians in Toronto.

Oriana Women's Choir


Oriana creates possibilities in choral music for upper voices. The choir collaborates with a wide range of artists to push the boundaries of what audiences might typically expect in women’s choral repertoire and performance, while adhering to a high artistic standard. 

Led by Artistic Director Mitchell Pady, we foster the creation of new Canadian choral repertoire for upper voices through regular commissioning and by maintaining a composer-in-residence relationship. Oriana undertakes artistic collaborations with a wide variety musicians and artists from other disciplines such as dance and visual arts, expanding the repertoire beyond classical choral music.  

Oriana is committed to the principle of social equity and has a policy to ensure that no financial, physical, or other barriers will prevent a singer who has successfully auditioned from joining the choir.

We are supported by the Toronto Arts Council, the Ontario Arts Council, Henkaa, and the SOCAN Foundation, by corporate sponsorship, concert revenues, fundraising efforts, chorister fees, and by generous support from individual donors.
