Special Presentation:  NOBU ADILMAN & DAVEED GOLDMAN (of Choir! Choir! Choir!)

Daveed Goldman and Nobu Adilman (AKA “DaBu”) started Choir! Choir! Choir! as a weekly drop-in, no commitment singing event in February 2011. Now happening twice weekly, and open to anyone who likes to sing new arrangements of pop songs, C!C!C! boasts a dedicated and passionate membership of inspired singers from in and around Toronto, Canada. They have performed live with Patti Smith at the Art Gallery of Ontario, Tegan and Sara on the Juno Awards, at TEDx Toronto 2014, and the 2012 Toronto International Film Festival Closing Gala at Roy Thompson Hall. Daveed and Nobu also lead corporate team-building sessions across the country and teach their arrangements in schools and at cultural events. They recently hit the road to bring the magic of Choir! Choir! Choir! to music festivals by teaching their arrangements to local choirs and holding singing workshops. Constantly pushing the boundaries of practice and performance, artist and audience, Daveed and Nobu are inspired by their many members and fans, and know this is just the beginning.
