We are a sixty-member community chorus from Truckee and surrounding areas. Founded in 2002 by Chris Nelson, we have expanded our repertoire to include music of all kinds - popular, sacred, classical, Broadway and Jazz. Each year, we hold concerts in December that help ring in the holiday season and in April to wake up Spring!
We practice during the Fall and Winter Semesters at the Sierra College Truckee Campus and our program are supported by the Osher Lifelong Learning Institute. Our two conductors, Susan Horst and Dr. Tom Acord, provide inspirational and fun rehearsals along with weekly clinics for all singers.
The Chorus supports all musical arts in our area and recently collaborated with Truckee's Rec and Parks Department to stage Annie and a fabulous "pre-show" of musical numbers from many of our region's talented youngsters. We were also a Gold Sponsor of the recent Relay for Life in Truckee

The mission of the Truckee Tahoe Community Chorus is to perform a wide range of quality choral works that will appeal to the diverse community members of the Truckee and North Lake Tahoe region. TTCC is dedicated to building, nurturing and promoting a strong choral musical arts program in the schools and within the community.
The Chorus, originally conceived in 2002 as a project of the Sierra Mountainaires Men’s Chorus, was designed to engage adults and students in the performance of a broad spectrum of fine choral music. Chris Nelson (MM from U. of Utah) spearheaded the founding of the organization which reflected the talent and desire of the Truckee/Tahoe community. He immediately enlisted the support of the Truckee Tahoe Community Foundation and Sierra College, Truckee Campus. The College, currently headed by Kimberly Bateman, Dean, continues to support the Chorus, which is offered as an Osher Life-Long Learning course.
