I’m so excited to promote Tri-City Youth Choir’s current show, “Rise!” I love show choirs, and so when Stephanie Monson reached out to me, I was so happy to learn that the Tri-cities has its very own youth show choir! Tri-City Youth Choir is a breath of fresh air! They are so completely energetic and obviously filled with a love for singing – and not just any singing –singing that uplifts and inspires their audience and fellow singers.
Participation is TCYC is by audition only for grades (9-12). These high school students can sing as well as dance! I was so impressed with their soloists’ ability to belt it out as well as the choir’s stamina to maintain dynamics while dancing and putting on a wonderful show at the same time! Their current show Rise reflects the purpose of TCYC, which is to give students a wholesome place to develop their talents among peers who share a belief that God and art coexist and where they can take that passion and shine like a light to those who attend their shows – and that’s exactly how I felt watching them in Rise!
What makes this show so fun is my family recognized many of the songs! This is a show the entire family can enjoy. Grab the grandparents, kids and grandkids and take them to this show! You will enjoy beautiful, uplifting music that will make the audience want to clap, cheer and sway along! Repertoire includes: “Fight Song,” “This is Me,” “Brave,” “You Raise Me Up,” and many more that you will love. They brought the audience to their feet after their final song, “I Lived.”
Everything about the presentation: costumers, hair, makeup, choreography, staging, etc. makes you feel like you are watching a collegiate show choir! You cannot help but walk away from this show feeling rejuvenated and empowered! I can’t wait to add all these great songs (many I recognized and some I haven’t heard before) to my playlist! Tickets are sold online and at the door. They have prepared for a great show! Learn about the choir in their complimentary program as well as upcoming summer youth camps!
