Head Choristers are Section Leaders who have shown exceptional leadership qualities and have made an outstanding contribution to the Chorus. They are responsible for representing the TCC publicly, communicating with staff about special plans, attending monthly Chorus Council meetings, focusing the choir before rehearsals and performances, leading in the creation of the yearbook, and organizing social events throughout the year. As you can tell, Head Choristers perform critical roles as ambassadors, role models and leaders!
This year, we are happy to introduce three incredible young leaders as the Head Choristers of our 40th anniversary season!
Hi, I’m Aramea Copeman and I’m incredibly excited to be one of the three head choristers for TCC’s 40th anniversary season! Over the last eight years in the choir I have had the best experiences and made the closest friends. Out of these experiences, my favourite was in July 2017, when I stood on the stage in Barcelona representing Canada at the 11th World Choral Symposium. Not only did we sing our best and meet people from around the world, but I also got to enjoy Spain with my best friends. This year, I’m looking forward to the holiday season with the TCC, our annual Sing Loo! fundraiser, Roy Thomson Hall holiday concert, carolling with the Main Choir and singing holiday songs in the community. Outside of choir I love baking, science and Christmas! (I have been listening to Christmas music since September 1st….) My advice to new choristers is to always be open to making friends in the choir, because from my experience, they are for life.
Hi, I’m Summer and I’m so excited to be a Head Chorister for the 2017-18 season! This is my 9th year in the choir and it’s honestly been the best 9 years of my life (even if that only leaves 7 years of boring choir-less life). During my time in this organization I have experienced and created so many amazing memories, such as being conducted by Penderecki in Poland, or shaking the hand of Prime Minister Justin Trudeau in New York City! How many people can say they’ve done that? I know this season will hold so many extraordinary experiences as good or better than that, especially being the 40th anniversary of the TCC. I’m so honored to be one of your Head Choristers this year, and I can’t wait to experience it alongside you!
Hello my name is Julie Anne Frynta and it is my greatest pleasure and honour to be a head chorister this year. I am the oldest of six children and my family loves to do sports and travel. This is my sixth year in the choir and I am very excited for the unforgettable opportunities and experiences that we will all have this 40th season. I truly hope that all the choristers of the Toronto Children’s Chorus will have a wonderful year full of life enhancing experiences and memories that will last forever. Singing is a powerful gift and it is a universal language, so whenever and wherever you are in the universe there will be people who love to sing.
