Angel has been a member of Singing Out since September 2018, and is now honored to serve as President of the choir’s board of directors. Music and singing have been a constant source of joy for Angel, ever since he took his first voice lesson when he was 14. Since then, he has been singing and taking part of choirs of many different sizes and styles. When Angel and his partner Erick moved from Mexico City to Toronto in 2018, they joined Singing Out. To their surprise they did not only find music, but they also found family.
For a living, Angel works in the organizational development space, where he facilitates learning and coaching experiences to leaders at all levels. Angel is excited to bring his own learnings and experiences to his work at the board.
Noah has been a member of Singing Out since 2019 and is excited to serve as Vice President on the choir’s board of directors. Noah has loved singing ever since he was a kid and participated in musical theatre until he was about 13 years old. Since then he has continued to sing exclusively in his car and his shower and now happily with Singing Out. Since joining Singing Out, Noah has found way more than a public place to sing, he has found family and community.
Noah studied International Business at Concordia University before changing directions and going to cooking school and then changing again and becoming a food stylist, which he has now done for over 17 years. His years working alongside some of the country’s top advertising agencies and largest corporations will bring insight to help provide lasting and useful strategies to help Singing Out in the years to come.
Carol first joined Singing Out in 2013, served as interim President in 2020 and has now rejoined the Board as Treasurer. Music has been an integral part of Carol’s life since her first piano lesson at 5 years old, and she’s been making music in one form another since then – including singing in a lot of choirs. She finds choral singing to be the best kind of community, and Singing Out the best community of them all.
Carol is currently reinventing herself at the Lincoln Alexander School of Law, with one more year to go. (Before she started law school, she didn’t know it was physically possible to drink as much coffee as she now does.) She comes to law as a second career, having spent some time in the public sector in Ontario and Yukon, working to bring transparency and accountability to government financial management, and now working with non-profit organizations to help them better manage their finances.
Carol is an avid traveler (all 7 continents) and when she’s not writing or making music, she’s probably hopping on a plane somewhere … at least when there’s not a pandemic.
Jeremy has been a member of Singing Out since September 2018 and is honoured to serve on its board of directors. Music has always been an important part of Jeremy’s life, from being a band geek in High School, to studying music at the University of Western Ontario, it’s no wonder he found his way to the wonderful and vibrant community that is Singing Out!
Fancying himself a bit of an outdoorsman, Jeremy loves cycling and camping. He participated in the Friends for Life bike rally in 2019 and hopes to continue in the future. A multi-instrumentalist, he also likes to dabble in the kitchen!
