About TC3

THE TORONTO CHILDREN’S CONCERT CHOIR & PERFORMING ARTS COMPANY (TC3) -

is more than a choir! Bringing together young people ages 7 to 17 from across the Greater Toronto Area, TC3’s mission is to promote, develop and encourage youth through inspirational song, dance and Afro-Caribbean drumming.

The focus is always on establishing excellence, holistic development and first-rate performance.

TC3 provides a culturally-rich musical arts program that ranges from Spirituals to hip hop. Our positive environment nurtures a sense of extended family and community for our young people.

Throughout COVID, HopeWorks continued to operate programs  virtually throughout lockdown periods. TC3 looks forward to restarting in-person practices and returning to live shows! All program staff, volunteers and participants must participate in HopeWorks COVID safety practices and  protocols.

With the return of a new normal, we expect audition spots to fill very quickly.
