Accompanist Needed for Spring

We are in need of a new accompanist for our spring season. We are looking for a skilled and dynamic pianist who can easily sight read, is available Monday evenings and has a passion for choral music. Also, please keep in mind we are a nonprofit. We understand the amount of time it takes beyond Mondays to practice, so we do offer a small stipend, but cannot offer much beyond that. If you are interested, please contact us.

We exist to provide adults who love to sing a fun and challenging opportunity to make music together!

"Music does bring people together. It allows us to experience the same emotions. People everywhere are the same in heart and spirit. No matter what language we speak, what color we are, the form of our politics or expression of our love and our faith, music proves: We are the same." ~ John Denver


2018 Spring concert "A Night at the Movies"


TCC has two formal concerts a year: one in the spring and one in the winter. The spring concert varies in themes such as "A Night at the Movies" to "Songs of the American West" to "Music that Moves Us." In the winter we have our Holiday Concert with all varieties of holiday music. We also participate in the Thornton Winter Fest.

Every summer TCC puts on a Cabaret Night. This performance gives our singers an opportunity to sing songs of their choice as a solo, duet or small ensemble. Some members also like to show off some of their other talents. The Cabaret Night always includes food, beverages and a whole lot of fun music!
