OLG CHARITABLE BINGO
Despite COVID-19, members of the Toronto Accolades continue to meet weekly for a ZOOM rehearsal. Although we sing four part harmony a cappella when we perform, during our rehearsals we use a keyboard to help us out with some of the trickier parts of the songs we are working on.
Several months ago, our elderly keyboard gave up the ghost. We are thrilled that, with the help of funds we received from Rama Gaming House--Toronto East, we have been able to purchase a new keyboard and stand. And, anticipating a time in the not too distant future when we will once again be bringing our keyboard to rehearsals at the community centre, we also purchased a sturdy case to protect our new investment.
Many thanks to Rama Gaming House--Toronto East from the Toronto Accolades.

The Toronto Accolades installed their new Board and recognized their award winners at a virtual Installation Ceremony on Thursday, May 6. It was an evening to celebrate. Nine of our members now sit on the Board, a huge show of commitment and enthusiasm for a relatively small chorus. A number of year pins were awarded, recognizing members who have been with the organization as much as 25, 30 and even 45 years! And the Accolade of the Year Award was presented to the entire team of 8 who took over organizing and leading rehearsals while we were between directors. Which brings us to our last reason to celebrate. Our new director!
OUR NEW DIRECTOR
We are excited to welcome Alana Regular into our Accolades family, and can hardly wait to get back to live rehearsals for a fresh new start, working together with her. In the meantime, she has enthusiastically taken on the challenge of guiding us through our weekly ZOOM rehearsals. You can find out more about Alana on our "Musical Director" page.
Why not hire Toronto Accolades to entertain at your next event? We can perform at corporate functions, charity events, community Entertainment events, birthday parties, christmas parties, awards nights, weddings, engagements, anniversaries, engagements, and even funerals and memorial services.
