Choir! Choir! Choir! in partnership with the City of Toronto will host a Tribute to Gord Downie. 

Join us to mark the loss of this great Canadian by filling Nathan Phillips Square with the sound of hundreds of people singing his songs. Gord Downie was a musician and activist, best known as lead singer for the Tragically Hip, one of Canada's most beloved rock bands.  Downie's music and lyrics touched multiple generations of Canadians. More recently, Downie has brought awareness and action to the legacy of Indian Residential Schools and the responsibility of Canadians to Canada's First Nations, Métis and Inuit peoples.

Date: Tuesday, October 24th
Time: 8:00 pm
Location: Nathan Phillips Square

Councillors Kristyn Wong-Tam and Mike Layton are honoured to co-host this event. Mayor Tory and Councillor Josh Colle, chair of the Toronto Music Advisory Council, will be in attendance.
