Orpheus Choir of Toronto, Sidgwick Scholars, 2021


The Orpheus Choir of Toronto invites applications from advanced vocal students and young vocal professionals


If you have a passion for singing, are pursuing vocal studies and enjoy choral music, audition as a Sidgwick Scholar with the Orpheus Choir and become part of one of Toronto’s finest choral ensembles.

Our Sidgwick Scholars:

  • act as section leads
  • perform as soloists throughout the concert season
  • earn rehearsal honorarium and performance fees for solos
  • and receive coaching from Artistic Director Thomas Burton.

You’ll join a tight-knit group of people with similar interests who grow together as musicians and friends, finding joy in singing and sharing the sense of pride and accomplishment that comes with every performance.

The Orpheus season runs from Labour Day to mid-May and typically comprises four season concerts plus occasional outside hires.

Be a part of this innovative singing experience and follow in the footsteps of Michael Colvin, Wallis Giunta, Patricia O’Callaghan, James Westman, Vasil Garvanliev, Leslie Anne Bradley, Michael Ciufo and many more young emerging vocalists who have gone on to successful singing careers.
