About Trenton Children's Chorus
Trenton Children's Chorus is an award-winning non profit organization offering exceptional musical, academic, social and personal opportunities for young people in the Greater Trenton Area. Founded in 1989 as an outreach project of Nassau Presbyterian Church by Sue Ellen Page and Marcia Wood, TCC began as an entirely volunteer-run organization with 11 children in its first year. Under the leadership of Executive Artistic Director Patricia Thel, today's program serves 140 singers in grades K-12. TCC offers choral music education and performance opportunities as well as drumming instruction, music theory instruction, tutoring, homework assistance, SAT prep, college application help, and summer camp scholarships. Tuition is on a sliding scale; no child is ever denied participation because of limited resources. In an urban area where the high school drop out rate of nearly fifty percent, 100% of TCC’s graduates attend college.TCC has performed at the White House, United Nations, National Cathedral, for the swearing-in ceremony of former U.S. Representative Rush Holt at the Library of Congress, the inauguration of Gov. Chris Christie, Princeton University, in concert with Bobby McFerrin and Dave Brubeck, and for corporate, community, church and private events in the greater Trenton area. In 2014-15 the Chorus celebrated its 25th anniversary.
