Daveed Goldman and Nobu Adilman (AKA “DaBu”) started Choir! Choir! Choir! as a weekly drop in, no-commitment singing event in February 2011. Now happening twice weekly, and open to anyone who likes to sing new arrangements of pop songs, C!C!C! boasts a dedicated and passionate membership of inspired singers from in and around Toronto, Canada. They have performed live with Patti Smith at the Art Gallery of Ontario, Tegan and Sara on the Juno Awards, at TEDx Toronto 2014, and the 2012 Toronto International Film Festival Closing Gala at Roy Thompson Hall.
Daveed and Nobu also lead corporate team-building sessions across the country and teach their arrangements in schools and at cultural events. They recently hit the road to bring the magic of Choir! Choir! Choir! to music festivals by teaching their arrangements to local choirs and holding singing workshops. Constantly pushing the boundaries of practice and performance, artist and audience, Daveed and Nobu are inspired by their many members and fans, and know this is just the beginning.
If you're curious about which song's we've sung (and when!), you can see the whole list here.

how to join
Choir! Choir! Choir! holds two drop-in sessions every week in downtown Toronto (in the back room of Clinton's Tavern, to be precise). They’re open to anyone and, at $5, is the best deal in town.
Here how it works: You show up, get a lyric sheet, and become a part of Choir! Choir! Choir! You will join a group of highs, mids, or lows, and by the end of the night, master three-part harmonies for a pop song or two. Every session is recorded so a video or audio clip can be shared with friends, family, and fans.
Pick your night, join our Tuesday or Wednesday Facebook group (or both!) and keep your eye out for invitations to weekly events.
You can also sign up for our mailing list, to get email notifications about events.
No auditions or reading music required. All you have to do prior to coming is: LISTEN TO THE FUCKING SONGS!™
