Welcome to TCWC!

We would love to welcome you into our community. We invite new members to register and join our community or test the waters by singing up to attend our open rehearsal on September 4, 2019 to experience a rehearsal before making the commitment to join. There are NO AUDITIONS necessary to sing, only a desire to find a supportive community of women who work and play hard, and the ability to match pitch with your self-selected section. Click the links at the bottom of this page to either register to sing or sign-up to attend open rehearsal.

Rehearsals

  • Wednesday 7:00pm - 9:00pm beginning Sept. 4, 2019 - May 21, 2020

  • One Saturday rehearsal/sectional per month (Varying dates) 9:00am -12:00pm

  • Misc. sectionals held at section leaders houses throughout the season. These are optional, but usually a BLAST! Good food, friendship, and a deep dive into the music.

We rehearse every Wednesday from 7:00 PM - 9:00 PM at Hennepin Avenue United Methodist Church at 511 Groveland Ave. Minneapolis, MN. There is a parking lot in the side of the church and the entrance door located off of the parking lot. We do one Saturday morning rehearsal a month from 9:00am-12:00pm where we hold sectional rehearsals. The final week before a concert always includes a dress rehearsal the day prior to the event.

Commitment

  • We ask that you miss no more than two rehearsals for each major concert and miss no rehearsals during the month prior to a concert. If you are going to miss you must contact your section leader ahead of time to let them know of your absence.

  • We produce three major concerts each season, which are usually:

    • November 23, 2019

    • March 5, 2020

    • May 16, 2020

  • There is no fee to participate, however we encourage you to help us offset costs by donating to the choir. We suggest a contribution of $720/year or $60/month (12-months) but we understand that may not be feasible for everyone. No one is turned away due to financial ability. We instead ask that you select an amount that you are comfortable with, for your situation, and give if you are able. We fully honor and recognize all contributions, including your time.

  • All members, regardless of donation level, are asked to help in spreading the word about our performances, participate in fundraising activities, and to volunteer.
