WE ARE HAPPY TO ANNOUNCE THAT WE ARE CELEBRATING OUR FIFTHTEENTH SEASON IN 2017-2018!
The Treasure Coast Community Singers (TCCS), choral society began with six “Founding” members in June of 2003, with the first performance in August, and surpassed 150 members by 2010.
With our singers and you’ll find a cross section of the Treasure Coast population pulled together by the love of music and singing. Many have been singing with us since 2003, but every year more than 20 new voices join. Whatever their background, our singers enjoy making beautiful music under the direction of Dr. Douglas P. Jewett, the man whose dream launched this community choir.
On April 1, 2010, TCCS Artistic Director, Doug Jewett, was chosen as that year’s Outstanding Performing Artist at the mArties Awards Luncheon. Doug received his Doctorate in Education in May of 2013. So we are thrilled to refer to him as Dr. Jewett.
The purpose of TCCS is to keep people singing and is dedicated to nurturing the musical skills of its members by emphasizing the development of proper technique and the blending of all parts into a true ensemble sound.
TCCS is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization with an active board of directors and members who volunteer their time on Teams. TCCS is a member of the Arts Council of Martin County, and participates in many community activities.
The TCCS Ensemble is a smaller group of singers available to entertain civic and social clubs, neighborhoods and communities as well as residences that serve our senior population. An invitation and audition is required to join. The Ensemble is currently under restructuring to meet a higher level of community requests.
Over the years, concerts have included a variety of nostalgic favorites and well known secular, religious and inspirational music. Beginning in 2009, TCCS launched into classical music and added three classical performances. Responding to the invitation were former members of the St. Lucie Chorale as well as those TCCS members with classical interests and experience. The result is a new sound and an invitation to a new audience.
Classical music requires some expertise. An audition is required to join the Classical Chorus. In order to join, you will need schedule and pass an audition with the Artistic Director. It is expected that you have a genuine desire to sing classical music, are capable of reading music, and have a strong work ethic for learning classical music.
TCCS continues to develop its TCCS Youth Chorus designed for students in grades 3 through 8 who love to sing. Under the direction of Michael Robbins,TCCS Assistant Director, it offers young singers the opportunity to improve vocal skills and expand their knowledge of music theory in a choral setting. Please refer to “Latest News” for details.
TCCS not only takes advantage of the musical talents of area residents, it makes music education possible for area youth. TCCS provides scholarship opportunities for area students who are studying or plan to study music at a college or university. A portion of each ticket purchased for a concert will go toward supporting our Scholarship Fund.
Annually, TCCS provides an opportunity for local businesses to support the Arts by publishing a concert program booklet that is handed out to every attendee at each one of our concerts from October though May. If you missed the opportunity to advertise with us, a donation is always welcomed. Recognition for placing an ad in the program will be given on the TCCS website, and any donation will seen in each of our concert inserts.
