Toronto Mendelssohn Choir (TMC) and the Nathaniel Dett Chorale share music that draws on different influences and traditions – Eastern Orthodox and Afrocentric – while sharing a common thread: humanity’s belief that amidst the most adverse circumstances imaginable, a higher, transcending world is enveloping us, and that a strong voice is necessary to evoke it.
