Univox Choir is a 70-person mixed voice community choir for young adults, with relationship — building, social responsibility and musical excellence at its core. It serves the City of Toronto by offering spirited performances of choral music, both old and new. Performed works are primarily a cappella and span a wide range of the choral spectrum: Renaissance madrigals and motets, choral classics, modern composition, spirituals, and international folk songs. Univox Choir has recently expanded to be part of a community of choirs which also now includes an all-women’s group, Florivox.
Univox was founded and is directed by Dallas Bergen in 2004. Dallas has extensive experience both singing in and conducting choirs. Dallas’ dream was to establish a community choir for young adults, and create a community of friends and artistic collaborators. Univox Choirs Toronto is the manifestation of this vision.
He has performed with the Elora Festival Singers, Nathaniel Dett Chorale and Canadian Chamber Choir. In addition to conducting Univox, Dallas also conducts the Parkdale Childrens’ Choir and the Nai Syrian Childrens’ Choir.
The choir follows its desire to nurture relationships with outlying communities by offering a summer concert in two communities. We are delighted that Millbrook has been selected as one of the locations for the 30-member tour in June. Please save the date and come out to enjoy a fabulous evening of music. KG
