Terra Choral Society is to celebrate its 10th season with the spring festival concert “Music That Changed the World,” to be presented April 26 and 27 in Port Clinton and Fremont. This concert will feature highlights from concerts over the past decade.

The Terra Choral Society originated as a small campus chorus in 2000 with 20 community members and grew along with the college’s music program to officially become a registered ensemble of the college in 2002. Changing its name to the Terra Choral Society in 2006, the chorus serves as the community/student chorus-in-residence at Terra State Community College.

The mission of TCS is to promote cultural enrichment through choral music, with educational and performance opportunities for students and community singers.
