If you are visiting the Toronto Mass Choir website, it is probably because your life has been touched by the Toronto Mass Choir and/or Gospel music in some way. How about a weekend that combines learning more about Gospel music and getting to know TMC better?

Presented in cooperation with York University, TMC’s annual gospel music workshop weekend, Power Up, is designed for singers, instrumentalists, songwriters, teachers, worship leaders, and anyone who is interested in gospel music and improving all areas of their musicianship.  Professionals in their respective fields lead motivating workshops at a variety of skill levels over two days (Friday/Saturday) in the beautiful, arts facility located on the Keele Campus at York University in Toronto, ON.

Now in its 12th year, Power Up 2016 welcomes new workshops and clinicians including new faculty member, Joy Lapps-Lewis, a steel pan specialist and educator. Joy will share her love of this 20th century musical innovation with those who are interested in beginning or extending their knowledge. In addition, for the first time ever, Power Up will give eligible applicants the opportunity to receive one-on-one instruction from a panel of recording artists at our brand new new ‘Power Up On-Stage Performance & Master Class’ on the Saturday evening.

Power Up registrants can also learn gospel choir music in a mass choir setting throughout the weekend beginning on Friday evening. The Power Up Workshop Mass Choir will perform in the finale concert held on Sunday, Feb. 21 along with the Toronto Mass Choir at Islington Evangel Centre in nearby Etobicoke, ON.

The low flat rate for the entire weekend is affordable for the whole family, especially if you take advantage of the early-bird registration price before the end of January or register in a group of 5 or more.
