Noah has been a member of Singing Out since 2019 and is excited to serve as 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.
Alex McCarthy has been with Singing OUT since 2005. Their passion for singing and music started in grade school where they sang in many school choirs and played the Clarinet in school bands. They met their partner of 20 years in another Toronto LGBT choir then both moved on to Singing OUT in 2005. Alex has served on four Singing OUT Board of Directors over the years and has brought their love for community and a passion for choral music as the fundraising and membership Board member. Alex works as a Social Worker in the Addiction and Mental health field.
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.
Victor has been a member of Singing Out since September 2021 and is excited to serve on its board of directors. Victor has been singing as part of the school choir since middle school all the way to University both in Mexico and the US.
Victor studied Educational Sciences at La Salle University in Mexico City and has been working in the Human Resources Technology area for over 15 years in several global organizations and he’s looking forward to bringing some of that experience to the board of directors.
I am 50 years old. I am a single mom with a 19 year old at UofT, and two cats. Fun fact: I got my drivers licence just 7 months ago. I love music and I love this choir. I hope to be useful in my role and support all the members.
