Hart House Jazz Choir

We are the University of Toronto’s Hart House Jazz Choir, otherwise known as Onoscatopoeia: a mixed choir that sings jazz, pop and R&B music. Most importantly, we sing a cappella! Harmonies blend to form all the necessary lines to a piece of music. Our only instruments are our voices, and what may sound like a wailing trumpet may just be one of our sopranos.
We strive to develop our musical skills while balancing an atmosphere of fun and camaraderie. Ultimately, we want to make great music! Sing with Us!
Speaking of camaraderie, we are always interested in meeting and singing with other similar groups from around North America. If your university or college a cappella group is coming through Toronto, Canada area (especially around the time of our end-of-term concerts), we’d love to try to arrange a workshop and/or performances with you. Drop us a line!
