TREASURE COAST -
The Treasure Coast Community Singers are beginning to rehearse for the upcoming season starting Aug. 20 at 6 p.m. at the North Stuart Baptist Church, 1950 N.E. Federal Highway, in Stuart.
Also starting Aug. 20 is the children/youth choir.
Since its inception in 2003, TCCS has grown from a handful of singers to a 140-member organization with five distinct performing groups.
The community choir rehearses on Monday evening at 7 p.m. This choir is open to all who enjoy singing and its repertoire includes old favorites, patriotic and inspirational music.
The classical choir rehearses on Tuesday at 6 p.m. This choir is designed for singers with the ability to read music and who have knowledge of music theory.
Auditions are required to be a member of the classical choir. The community and classical ensembles are outreach choirs made up of members from the community and/or classical choirs.
These groups are available to perform at community events, organization meetings and club parties.
The newest addition to TCCS is the children/youth choir for students in grades three through 12 who love to sing.
