Big, Big Sing! Sunday, December 6…4 p.m.
Please join our three UBUNTU choirs as we celebrate coming together from a distance and sharing songs , for our first collaborative fundraising Big Sing online!
The hosting of this event will be shared between three choir communities. Tina Filippino, director of Letz Sing, will be leading from Comox Valley, Heather Kingham, director of TC Sings!, will be leading from Traverse City, and Jennifer McNeil Miller, director of High Spirit Harmonies, will be leading from Denver.
This variety packed collaborative effort will have virtual choir performances, a piece that is a collaborative effort between all three choirs, and plenty of opportunity to sing along throughout the program.
This event is a fundraiser for The Caia Connection, a organization out of Victoria that raises funds for a community in Mozambique. The donations generated from this event will go specifically to the Traditional Music Program. Find out more about the Caia Connection here

Spring Session of TC Sings! Starts February 2021
Registration coming soon
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.
Singing is offered this spring on Wednesdays and Thursdays, online via ZOOM. Full choir singing sessions will be Thursdays from 6 – 7:15 p.m., with time for socializing before and after. Wednesdays will be OPTIONAL sectional rehearsals, as follows: 1 p.m. sopranos, 1:30 p.m. altos, 2 p.m. tenors, 2:30 p.m. bases. Everyone is welcome to attend any and all sectionals, just for fun!
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 currently in 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 though we can’t hear one another in real time (YET; the technology may be coming soon!), even though we are only seeing each other’s faces in little boxes on a screen…still, 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.
Founder and director Heather Kingham is a graduate of the Community Choir Leadership Training in Victoria, British Columbia. Heather is dedicated to putting a song into the hearts of every interested person in the Grand Traverse area.
