Last week the TCA kicked off holiday celebrations with not one, or two but seven shows! It was a busy week for TCA staff, partner organizations, local youth and musicians.
Tecumseh Pops and Community Chorus kicked off the holidays with their holiday concert on Sunday, December 9. The event included Christmas tunes in addition to holiday music throughout the year. Those in attendance heard musical compositions celebrating the New Year, Easter, Independence Day, Halloween and finally Christmas. The TCA auditorium and stage were filled with sounds of joy and celebration.
The TCA then quickly changed gears as staff changed the stage, lighting and props from Pops to the Nutcracker Ballet. With updated costumes and props, local ballet dancers rehearsed Monday-Wednesday night before opening night on Thursday, December 10. Months of hard work, practice, patience and collaboration all came together for one of our biggest casts in history. The Nutcracker Ballet delighted young and old with the dancing gifts from local youth, instructional expertise from dance studio owners and choreographers and dedicated Tech Corp students who oversaw the lighting, prop changes and music.
In less than 12 hours following the final performance of the Nutcracker Ballet, the TCA stage was once again transformed for the TCA Big Band and VocalAires’ Holiday Concert. The concert took place on Sunday, December 13 with over 300 patrons celebrating the musical sounds of the big band era led by Director Marty Marks. TCA Big Band and VocalAires featured vocalists Connie Hutchison, Joyce Lancaster, Heather Hardcastle and Mike Ratz singing songs including White Christmas, Home for the Holidays, Everybody’s Waitin’ for the Man with the Bag and Here’s to Life. The TCA Big Band performed holiday favorites including Adeste Fidelis (Oh Come All Ye Faithful), and I Heard the Bells on Christmas Day, along with big band tunes such as Opus One and much more.
What a fun and magical time at the TCA. Thank you to everyone who came out and enjoyed these holiday events.
