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




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!

Throughout the choral season, TCC takes the opportunity to provide music to those who may not be able to go out on the town. We have been privileged to sing at many assisted living and retirement homes. TCC has also been booked to sing at a birth 90th day party and a local church’s service. Want us to sing at your next event? Contact Us!
