When TCS performs, it both enriches DC's musical life and uplifts local communities. As one of the leading chamber choirs in the region, it performs and funds new music, highlighting often ignored female-identifying composers and composers of color. Its volunteer singers rehearse and socialize regularly, building a community of belonging that one participant describes as "more than just a place to sing." Through free vocal lessons, they also develop their musicianship an opportunity to which many chorus members previously had no access. In addition to donating 50% of its ticket proceeds, TCS shares concert space with its partner organizations, collaborating on food drives, pop-up art galleries, and poetry readings. This dual mission continually draws singers and audiences who together have helped fund community resources, including DC's first permanent women's shelter. In a city of many choirs, these voices really make a difference.
