Pop Show Recordings

Our first night of pop show was recorded, and you can purchase access to a download link for $25.00. You can do that below! Please note that the download links are not instant, and it may take up to four weeks for production time.

Coffeehouse 2023

We are so excited for a new event, Coffeehouse! Coffeehouse will be on March 24th at 7pm in the TMHS Cafeteria. This is another opportunity for students to perform, and in a more relaxed, low pressure environment. We hope you'll join us!

Spring Trip 2024 NYC Interest Meeting

Next year is our out-of-state trip year and the TMHS Choir and Orchestra Departments have been approached about a collaborative performance in Carnegie Hall during Spring Break of 2024! This is an exciting opportunity for both of our programs! Approximate dates are Wednesday, March 13th - Monday, March 18th, 2024. This will be the only trip offered for the Spring of 2024.

Below is the presentation and notes from the Interest meeting from Thursday night.

Please fill out the interest form so we know what your family is thinking in regards to next years NYC trip!

Voice Lessons

We still have a couple of spots available in our private voice studios for this semester, particularly in Belles and Dudes! This is an incredible opportunity for students to learn one-on-one with an experienced private instructor to grow as a musician, as well as gain confidence as an individual. The concentration on individualized vocal technique benefits students in all areas of vocal music, including Pop Show and Musicals.

We have two music-degreed private instructors who have performed on various stages throughout the world. During the school year, we have at least two solo competition opportunities for students to compete in, and a recital at the end of the year to showcase their talents to family and friends. The students who participate in a private voice studio will also benefit by including their successes in various competitions on their college application, regardless of their pursued major. In addition, many universities have scholarships for non-music majors that these students would be eligible for.

Students receive 23-minute lessons once a week, at a rate of $24 per lesson paid directly to the private instructor. This is a bargain in comparison to the usual $35-50 lessons from outside vocal coaches! Lessons occur during class time, so there is no conflict with after school tutorials or events. You may also use fundraising points to help cover voice lessons as well!

If your student is interested in beginning lessons, please let us know!

Worlds Finest Chocolate Fundraiser

If you have boxes of chocolate at home, please make sure you are selling the chocolate and returning the envelope and money to the Choir room! We still have a lot of boxes checked out - some since August! If you ate all of your chocolate, you still owe the money back to the TMCBC!
