From Thanksgiving to New Year’s, we are highlighting each of the organizations featured in the Jersey Give-Back Guide, an online giving gadget that takes the guesswork out of year-end giving.
Trenton Children’s Chorus
WHAT THEY DO:
For over 25 years Trenton Children’s Chorus has offered its participants the life-changing experience of reaching new heights of achievement through the disciplines of rehearsal and performance. TCC’s after-school program provides the very best in traditional choral music education including choral rehearsal, drumming, piano instruction and music theory. TCC also provides academic support, SAT prep, college advisement, placement in summer music and academic enrichment programs, college scholarships, and financial assistance for secondary schools and private music lessons.
Over 140 children and youth in kindergarten through 12th grade from Trenton and the surrounding communities.
WHY THEY’RE GREAT:
The TCC experience is transformational. Even the youngest children can learn to make a beautiful sound with their voices, and when children discover the beauty within and experience the joy of performing well, they make a connection between hard work and success that goes far beyond singing. They are empowered academically, emotionally, and socially and see a world of possibilities for themselves. Watch The TCC Story.
In an urban area with a nearly 50% high school drop out rate, 100% of TCC graduates attend college.
TCC provides outstanding performance opportunities that would be remarkable for any child, anywhere. TCC has performed at the White House, including for President and Mrs. Obama, United Nations, National Cathedral, Princeton University, in concert with Bobby McFerrin and Dave Brubeck, for the inauguration of New Jersey Governor Chris Christie, and for corporate, community, church and private events in the greater Trenton area.
