The 8 voice jazz vocal ensemble disbanded in 2002, and since then – one of our cherished singers passed on to add her voice and wonderful spirit to God’s heavenly choir.  Stephanie Taylor will be sadly missed, as will baritone Tim Olfert, who moved to the west coast. 
Meanwhile, we have 6 voices assembled for this exciting concert – Debbie Fleming, Judy Tate, Suba Sankaran, Dylan Bell, Larry Folk and Tom Lillington.  We’ll sing some of Debbie’s songs and arrangements, as well as some Gene Puerling and Take 6.
The weekend, beginning on Thursday May 9th, will be a wonderful taste of vocal groups – both local and international.  Highlights will be The Real Group and Swingles Singers.

Suba Sankaran leads her own busy "east meets west" award winning, Juno nominated fusion ensemble Autorickshaw,  sings in 80's retro vocal ensemble Retrocity.   Dylan Bell is also in Retrocity, and is currently producing the famed Swingle Singers.    Tom Lillington is a member of the classical Canadian Chamber Choir and adds his rich bass  tones to Retrocity.  Debbie Fleming sings first soprano in The Toronto Mendelssohn Choir, directs, sings and accompanies bluegrass-country trio ChoirGirlz and sings with her own jazz ensemble, The Debbie Fleming Trio.
