TCYC Mission Statement
The mission of the Tri-City Youth Choir (TCYC) is to provide a wholesome refuge for youth to develop and excel in their musical talents and enhance the choral arts locally; a place where God and the arts coexist, where youth realize the source of their gifts and their responsibility to share them with others. As ambassadors for all that is good, the Tri City Youth Choir will bring hope to the community through song and performances created to uplift and inspire.
