Founded in 1974, the Amadeus Choir is under the direction of Conductor and
Artistic Director Lydia Adams. The Choir has become known for its
professionalism, exceptional musicality, and diverse, high-quality programming -
all a reflection of the leadership provided by Dr. Adams. During her time as
Conductor and Artistic Director (since 1984), the choir has grown significantly
in size and reputation to become one of Canada’s pre-eminent choral groups.
The Amadeus Choir performs a regular series of concerts at carefully
selected downtown Toronto venues, presenting well-known artists in works by
Canadian and international composers, including major works with instrumental
ensembles or full orchestra, as well as challenging a cappella performances.
In addition to the Amadeus Choir’s regular concert series, the choir takes
an active role in Ontario’s choral community by working in collaboration with
other prominent local ensembles, such as the Elmer Iseler Singers, Bach
Children’s Chorus, Toronto Symphony Orchestra, Hannaford Street Silver Band,
Gryphon Trio, Trillium Brass and True North Brass.
