Come sing with us!

No choir this week…choir resumes Sep 24/25. See you then!

Fall Session of TC Sings!

September – January, 2014

Love to sing, even if it’s only in the shower? Come experience the joy of singing with others in a fun, relaxed, and accepting atmosphere. TC Sings! is an inclusive choir community, welcoming all voices and all people, singing songs from a variety of world cultures and traditions in three- and four-part harmony. Everything is taught orally; there is no need to read music, and no previous singing experience is required.

Two sessions are offered this fall, both at the Grand Traverse Circuit, 225 W 14th Street in Traverse City:

TC Sings! High Noon     Wednesdays     12 – 2 p.m.      Sep 3 – Jan 14 

TC Sings! Evening          Thursdays           7 – 9 p.m.       Sep 4 – Jan 15

***NOTE: No choir Sep 17/18, Nov 26/27, Dec 24, 25, 31, Jan 1*** For full schedule with all dates listed, download our registration form.

Both sessions will cover the same material. Choose daytime or evening, or come to both. The choirs will join together for a Big Sing benefit and celebration to share music with family and friends on Sunday, January 18. 

To register, download our registration form, or contact Heather Kingham (503) 422-6515 or heather@tcsings.org.  Cost is $105 for sixteen weeks, prorated for late starters. Early bird discount ($10 off) for registrations prior to September 3. Sliding scale and scholarships available. Visitors always welcome…check us out with no obligation. Let’s sing!

TC Sings! is a member of the Ubuntu Choirs Network, which seeks to create a world in which we listen deeply to those around us, celebrate diversity, trust in our voices, and bring them forward on behalf of harmony, justice, and peace. “Ubuntu” is a Zulu word which expresses the concept “I am because you are;” we are connected to and must look out for one another.

Singing is our birthright; all voices are welcome. TC Sings! is a choir for men and women who are new to singing, as well as those who’ve been singing their whole lives. We are not affiliated with any particular religion or spiritual path, but seek to celebrate humanity’s highest aspirations through music.

  5. Dawn says:

    Is this just for adults?

    • admin says:

      Hi Dawn,

      The choir is geared toward adults at this time, but mature teens who are interested in participating would also be welcome. At some point I hope to add a “family choir” that would include music geared specifically toward kids.

      Thanks for your interest,
      Heather

    I think this sounds like a wonderful opportunity for folks who enjoy singing together. I’m not sure I can be there tonight for practice, but hopefully next Thursday. I will try for tonight though. Thanks you for organizing this group. I have been singing in a number of different church groups and a few years with the NMC Community Choir. I have been in Traverse City for almost 40 years-just shy of “being a native”…..but my youngest son is
    a native! Is there a specific age limit for this musical group?

    • admin says:

      Hi Denyse,

      Great talking with you this morning…I wanted to respond to the age question. We do not have an age limit for our group. Certainly there is no upper limit…as far as a lower limit, the group is geared toward adults, but mature teens would also be fine if they are interested in participating.

      Look forward to singing with you!
      Heather

    • admin says:

      Hi Pat! Great running into you! So glad you are coming to sing. One very important note: we are not meeting next week, the week of TCAPS spring break, so no choir March 27 nor March 28. We will resume Wednesday, April 3 at High Noon and Thursday, April 4 at 7 p.m.

      Looking forward to singing with you!!
      Heather
