Pipes & Percussion (Past)

We pull out all the stops as we showcase the combined sounds of the Singers, White Concert Hall’s 52-rank Reuter organ, and a variety of wind and percussion instruments. In addition, some of our top area high school singers will join us on stage. March “roars in like a lion”, and the TFS will keep the tumult going with an exciting program featuring an eclectic array of choral works – we’ll raise the roof!

A Night at the Oscars (Past)

Inspired by the silver screen, the Singers will conclude the season with a concert that will take you on an Oscar nominated musical journey through over 75 years of movie making. And, as we do each May, several members of the ensemble will be featured in solo roles. No red carpet to walk…tuxedos and gowns are optional… your only requirement is to have a great time!
