Teachers College Community Choir

Teachers College Community Choir

Directed by Nicole Becker, the TC Choir provides a space for members of the TC and Columbia communities to come together in song. We sing a diverse array of music, drawing on the musical interests and expertise of all our members. We seek to engage members at all levels of experience, providing opportunities for all to grow through vocal training, collective singing, shared leadership, and joyous performances at TC and in the community. Music will be taught in multiple ways; reading music notation is not required. There are no auditions - everyone is welcome!


Rehearsals and performances are fully in person.

Tuesdays 7:20-9 pm
