The Toronto Northern Lights is a dynamic group of men working towards a common goal of musical excellence to thrill and charm audiences. The chorus attracts members from the complete range of ages, backgrounds and employment: from twenty-year-old university students, to business professionals, to men in retirement. Although Toronto is our home base, we draw members from a large area, with men willing to travel 200 miles (in all seasons!) for rehearsals, just to be part of the excitement.
TNL's expansive repertoire ranges from Barbershop to Broadway, Vocal Jazz to Doo-Wop, and from Gershwin to the Beatles. We have had the privilege of being invited to be guest performers in Dortmund, Germany at the 2006 BinG! (Barbershop in Germany) convention and at the 2008 BABS (British Association of Barbershop Singers) convention in Cheltenham, England. We also were delighted to participate in the Vocal International Music Festival in Venray, Holland in 2010.
In 2013 we had the thrill of winning the gold medal at the Barbershop Harmony Society International Chorus Competition, held in Toronto that year.
