The Toronto Mendelssohn Choir is a Canadian large vocal ensemble based in Toronto, Canada. Grand symphonic sound has been the trademark of the Choir's performances for over 100 years.

The choir was co-founded in 1894 by Dr. Augustus S. Vogt and W. H. Hewlett. The ensemble was originally an extension of the choir of Jarvis St. Baptist Church in Toronto which Dr. Vogt directed and Hewlett accompanied. The choir is named after composer Felix Mendelssohn Bartholdy.

The choir has over 150 voices. They are mostly volunteers (auditioned amateurs) with a professional core of 20. The chamber sized 70-voice Toronto Mendelssohn Singers is formed from the Choir.

The choir performs choral masterpieces throughout Canada and has also toured in the United States and Europe including Carnegie Hall, Royal Albert Hall, Notre Dame Cathedral, and Kennedy Center and major venues in Vienna, Salzburg and Prague.


The ensemble has many recordings on the EMI/Angel and Naxos labels. The choir has appeared on movie soundtracks including the award-winning 1993 soundtrack to Schindler's List (uncredited) under the direction of conductor/composer John Williams.
