The choir has soprano, alto, bass-baritone and tenor sections. Music reading ability is definitely a plus, but those with good voice and fast-learning skills are also welcome. Then 2007-2008 season will feature excerpts from "Di yam gazlonim" ("Pirates of Penzance" in Yiddish), Yiddish and international folk songs, beloved pieces by Avrom Goldfadden, and Israeli songs in Hebrew, Yiddish and English. Annual fees are $150.00, but exceptions are made for low-income singers. For more information, contact the Co-President, Enid Moscovitch, at 416-709-5502, or Ben Shek: 416-489-7681.
