TULSA, Okla. - Aug. 13, 2016 - PRLog -- Back to Broadway is the theme for the upcoming season of the Tulsa Children's Chorus. On Saturday, August 27th 2016, the Tulsa Children's Chorus (TCC) will begin its 26th Season with its annual Fall Kickoff Event .  The kickoff is free and will be held at Boston Avenue United Methodist Church, 1301 S Boston Ave, Tulsa from 10:00am – 3:00pm.

Rehearsals take place each Tuesday from September through May in preparation for upcoming events. Past performances include Thanksgiving Lights On at Utica Square with Grady Nichols, performing with native Oklahoman and Metropolitan Opera star Leona Mitchell and performing at Tulsa's Empty Bowls event. The upcoming season is sure to be filled with many more fantastic opportunities for members of the Tulsa Children's Chorus.

"I love to sing with TCC because it makes me happy", "I love singing because it makes me think anything is possible" and "I love learning new foreign languages that appear in the TCC repertoire" these are just a few of the reasons why children love to sing with the Tulsa children's Chorus. Charlotte Blakely, Artistic Director, states, "Helping children connect and grow through a love of music is my life's calling and TCC is my favorite place to do that!"
