The Trenton Children’s Chorus 25th Anniversary Committee Thanks Princeton, Trenton Communities
To the Editor:
As chair of Trenton Children’s Chorus (TCC) 25th Anniversary committee, I want to thank the Princeton and Trenton communities for helping us hit a high note at our 25th Anniversary Celebration concerts. Audiences were on their feet and clapping to the music at packed performances on March 27 at Covenant Presbyterian Church in Trenton, and on March 28 at Miller Chapel in Princeton. The Trenton Children’s Chorus under the direction of Patricia Thel; the Princeton Seminary Singers, directed by Martin Tel; and guest soloist Rev. William Heard joined voices in a glorious evening of gospel music. Included in the program was the premiere of a work commissioned in honor of the occasion, “One Human Family,” by renowned gospel composer Raymond Wise.
We at TCC are so very grateful for the support of all our Princeton and Trenton friends and families. TCC provides exceptional musical, academic, personal, and social opportunities — choral rehearsal, drumming instruction, music theory, enrichment — for young people after school. TCC’s role in the Trenton community couldn’t be more important than it is today. In an urban area where the high school drop out rate is greater than 50 percent, 100 percent of TCC’s graduates attend college.
The Trenton Children’s Chorus will hold their spring concert on Friday, May 15 at 7 p.m. at Covenant Presbyterian Church, 471 Parkway Avenue, Trenton. A free-will offering will be received. More information is available at www.trentonchildrenschorus.org.
