Massey College offers a wide variety of clubs and committees, with activities and presentations open to the Massey community and, in many cases, to the public.
All are welcome to join the Massey College Choir – Junior and Senior Fellows, Quadranglers, visiting scholars, Journalism Fellows and staff. No previous experience is required – we are assisted by trained vocalists who provide support and assistance.
We sing a wide variety of music, including arrangements of folk and pop songs, contemporary Canadian choral music, and traditional choral repertoire from around the world.
In a normal year, the choir meets for one hour on Monday evenings following dinner and performs at three events per term. During this pandemic year, it is unfortunately on hiatus, but we hope to be able to meet again in 2021-22.
The Massey College Music Club offers a series of evening events, open to all the community, which explore the creation and performance of music. Programming is eclectic, ranging from music in the movies to new directions in Indigenous music, and from the creation of a new opera to the influence of Hip Hop music and culture on our world today.
The events are planned by a committee of Junior and Senior Fellows, alumni and Quadrangle Society members, and are generally a blend of live or recorded performance along with discussion, invited presenters include highly talented members of the Junior and Senior Fellowship as well as creative leaders from the wider community.
The Massey College Book Club was founded at the first meeting of the Quadrangle Society in 1998. Under normal circumstances, meetings are held in the Upper Library three times each term, usually following a community dine-in-hall event. Programming for the Book Club is planned by a committee of Quadrangle Society Members, Senior Fellows, and Junior Fellows assembled each year.
Due to the Covid-19 pandemic, this year the Massey College Book Club will run a limited season of online events until such time as circumstances allow for in-person sessions once again.
Community members who wished to get involved are encouraged to get in touch with the committee via email, here.
