Join the award-winning T.C. Williams High School Choir of Alexandria for its annual Holiday Concert on Tuesday, December 11th at 7:30 pm at the auditorium at T.C. Williams High School.

The T.C. Williams High School Choir is one of several choirs across the country that has been recently selected to perform at the renowned 2019 Music for All National Festival in Indianapolis, Indiana. Music for All’s mission is to create, provide, and expand positively life-changing experiences through music for all.

Under the direction of Theodore Thorpe III, the choir has consistently received “superior” grades in their competition performances. Thorpe hopes performing at the upcoming 28th annual Music for All National is a necessary precursor to the choir’s goal of competing in the World Choir Games in Belgium in 2020.

When the choir is not competing, the T.C. Williams Choir sings for special occasions, like the Dedication Ceremony of the National Museum of African American History and Culture on September 24, 2016, where they sang for three U.S. presidents and many other dignitaries and celebrities.

Over the last nine years they have sung on nationally televised productions on TNT and CBS-TV respectively, with current music sensations Maxwell, Yo-Yo Ma, Mariah Carey, Jennifer Hudson, Diana Ross, Scotty McCreery, Miranda Cosgrove, Demi Lovato, Matthew Morrison, and Justin Bieber. The Choir also performed at The John F. Kennedy Center for President Clinton, President Carter, President G.W. Bush, honoring the service of President George H.W. Bush.
