Members of the CCCS come from all backgrounds, drawn together by a love of performing choral music and other genres, including classical, sacred, folk and contemporary. In addition to works from Croatia’s rich musical heritage, we also sing in English, French, German, Italian, Japanese and Greek. New members of all ages are warmly welcomed, and aside from a love of singing, no formal musical training is required and members do not need to speak any language other than English.
Established in 2013 under the award-winning artistic direction of Edward Mavrinac, CCCS members rehearse online regularly bi-weekly in the evenings during the pandemic and look forward to performing again at sold-out Spring and Christmas concerts and offering free festival performances and popular sing-alongs at seniors’ residences throughout the GTA as soon as public health guidelines permit.

The Canadian Croatian Choral Society is led by a volunteer board of directors elected by choir members. Each board member serves two calendar-year terms, renewable for a maximum of four years. The board is responsible to members for establishing and executing the choir’s strategic plan and overseeing sub-committees including concert planning, fundraising and membership.
