SING! The Toronto Vocal Arts Festival

Wave is a proud sponsor of SING! The Toronto Vocal Arts Festival! Canada’s premier acappella festival (singing without instruments) held every year in May.  We bring together thousands of professional singers (Canadian and international), students, teachers, divas and in-the-shower belters.  We:

  • create a safe space for learning
  • illustrate that the voice has no limits – knows no constraints of genre, language or cultural background.
  • ask participants to step outside their comfort zones and try something new
  • educate and inspire todays’ youth
  • foster a new and revitalized patronage for the vocal arts.

Started in 2011 on a shoestring budget with 7 enthusiasts, we now are the best in Canada.  We lend our expertise to festivals in other cities to expand the enjoyment of a cappella music.
