Frequently Asked Questions
Who can join TCC?
TCC is open to all K-12 graders. You do not have to reside in Trenton.
How do I register?
All participants must register. You can register online beginning Friday, August 14, 2020.
What is the time commitment?
Joining TCC requires a commitment from the chorister to be a regular attendee at rehearsals and performances, to be on time, to be respectful, and to sing! Rehearsals are 2 afternoons per week this year from mid-October to mid-May, plus occasional evening or weekend performances.
Can my child attend part-time?
We require choristers to commit to regular attendance for the entire Fall Semester (Oct-Dec), as this year's programming style is different.
When and where are rehearsals?
Rehearsals begin October 6th, 2020 and are Tuesdays and Thursday afternoons. Because of COVID-19, all of our rehearsals and elective courses are fully online. The full calendar may be accessed through our member portal.
What will my child be doing at rehearsals?
We divide choristers into five different age based co-ed choirs. Your child will receive professional instruction with their choir from our seasoned choir directors and accompanists at each rehearsal. They will learn vocal fundamentals and various genres of music (classical, gospel, world music, etc.) while making friends and being a part of the creative process. Students will also be enrolled in elective courses, and can choose between instrumental and musical skill building courses.
Is transportation provided?
At this time, we are not providing transportation as our Fall 2020 programming is entirely online.
