Launch and founder members of TCC2

At the first rehearsal on Sunday 7th November 2010 in John Hampden School, Thame

TCC2: Thame Children’s Choir is Born.

A new children’s choir had a sparkling first rehearsal on Sunday 7th November. 29 children aged between 8 and 13, coming from 11 different schools in and around the Thame area joined local professional conductor Duncan Aspden and well-known Haddenham music teacher Alison Green for a fun session in John Hampden School, Thame.

One young singer said: “We sang some fun pieces and I made a new friend. It was great – I can’t wait for the next one!” One parent said “It’s great to have a choir like this locally: my kids came home really buzzing.”

The choir has been started by Thame Chamber Choir, well known locally for the high quality of their concerts. “We’ve all seen the TV choirmaster Gareth Malone do his stuff,” said Alison Green. “And we all know that singing in schools can be a bit patchy: some excellent, some less so. When we realised there wasn’t a really good concert choir for children locally, we decided to found one. And so TCC2 was born”.

You can hear TCC2 for the first time at Thame Chamber Choir’s Christmas Fantasia concert in St Mary’s Church on 18 December. Tickets are selling fast already.

New members are still welcome. Email us at, ring Alison Green/Sue Griffiths on 01844 292088/215680 for further information, or just come to John Hampden School, Park Street, Thame at 4.30pm on Sunday to join in.
