We are ZOOMING together…fees prorated for late starters. Get all the details here.
See you soon for singing!
An invitation for you…
Fall Session of TC Sings! Register here!
September 17 – December 3
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 fall 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!
We will be collaborating this term on an online BIG, BIG SING on Sunday, December 6, at 4 p.m. with two sister Ubuntu choirs: Letz Sing in British Columbia, and High Spirit Harmonies in Colorado. Save the date!

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.
