Apologies - the TCC2 website is down at the moment. It should be up and running again by 23.9.


"TCC2 gave my children a rare and unique opportunity to sing songs and develop their musical experience in a way that they would not have been able to access anywhere else. They appreciated the high expectations that were expected of them and took pride in the quality of the singing that resulted and the opportunities to perform with Thame Chamber Choir. TCC2 is like no other children's choir that I have ever encountered and it was a privilege for my children to be among the founding members."


Thame Children's Choir commences rehearsals on Sunday 8th Sept at John Hampden school. Training choir 4 - 4:50 and seniors 430 - 6pm. Concert times with be posted when they are confirmed. See you on Sunday!

Renaissance genius, Leonardo da Vinci imagined manned flight in the 16th century and left numerous sketches of what a flying machine might look like and how it might work!
TCC will present a musical soundtrack of how he got there, created by American composer Eric Whitacre. It's a sweeping, cinematic piece, so make sure you've read the text before we start.

For 5 more days, you can still get tickets at the advance price of £10, from The Book House, Thame.
