RTCS Show Choir is an opportunity for students to use their gifts in music and performance to benefit the local community. Initial interest in forming a show choir was student-driven, and so RTCS Show Choir officially began in 2016 with our first Christmas-time performance. Show Choir has performed at the Willows Senior Living Facility in McKees Rocks, Pittsburgh International Airport, and the Byham Theater in downtown Pittsburgh, in addition to the yearly RTCS Christmas Concert and RTCS Spring Concert and Art Expo.
To respect and encourage each other regardless of ability or age
To be diligent in learning the skills of our craft--musical blend, pitch, tone quality, breathing, and music reading, as well as dance techniques and physical stamina
To perform a varied repertoire of Broadway and jazz standards
To work together as a team to accomplish our performance goals
And to do it all for the glory of God!
