Montreal Jubilation Gospel Choir


The Montreal Jubilation Gospel Choir came together under the direction of Dr. Trevor W. Payne C.M. in 1982 for what was meant to be a one-time collaboration concert between the Montreal Black Community Youth Choir and the United Union Church Senior Choir. Three decades later, this award-winning choir has gained an international reputation. They have travelled across Canada and toured the United States and Europe performing before Canadian Prime Ministers, including Brian Mulroney, Pierre Elliot Trudeau, Jean Chrétien and Stephen Harper as well as world leaders like Nelson Mandela and Queen Elizabeth II. The Choir has also collaborated with some of the music industry’s biggest names such as Celine Dion, Ray Charles, Michael Bolton and New Kids on the Block.

They have released a dozen albums on the Justin Time label including, two retrospectives and their most recent release the seasonal ‘A Celebration In Time.’ Dr. Payne is the proud recipient of the Golden Jubilee Medal and the Order of Canada.

In January 2010, he received the Gala Soba Image Award for his contribution and devotion, to one of the most prestigious gospel choirs in North America: the Montreal Jubilation Gospel Choir.
