Fall Term starts mid-September!
Details coming soon.
An invitation for you…
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 (still true, even though it’s Zoom!). 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.
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 we 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.
And even though we are still in the midst of a very strange time, singing-wise, it’s still a good idea to raise our voices in song. Even in the privacy of our own homes, even if we can’t hear one another in real time, even if we are only seeing each other’s faces in little boxes on a screen…we are in community, we are having fun learning new tunes that can carry us through our days, and we are connected to one another. And as more and more of us become fully vaccinated, it will be possible to meet in person safely…this summer, outside…and one day, even inside. 🙂
