We are half way through our fall semester so it seems like a good time to tell you a little more about TCHA and our dreams for this ministry. Rather than simply write it all out, wouldn’t it be more fun to take a quiz?
True or False: TCHA's first musical was The Music Man.
TCHA’s first musical production was Musical Mosaic performed on May 2, 2014. It was directed by Jen Perdue and consisted of a cast of 16 students.
The Music Man was TCHA’s first FULL-LENGTH musical with a cast of over 40 students and directed by Hannah Jackson.
*If you answered TRUE, we’ll give it to you because Musical Mosiac was a compilation of scenes from a variety of musicals, so, technically, it might not be considered a musical.
True or False: The TCHA Board is considering adding cooking classes.
The current mission of TCHA is to provide PERFORMING ARTS classes and opportunities to home-educated students in the Minneapolis/St. Paul area. We are considering a movie-making class, a music theory class, and possibly more dance options (i.e. ballroom, swing dancing, etc.).
True or False: TCHA classes have always met at South Suburban Church.
TCHA first met at Hope Church in Apple Valley where Mark Opseth served as Senior Pastor.
True or False: TCHA offers private lessons.
We have tutors ready, willing and able to provide private lessons in violin, guitar, ukelele, bass, piano, voice, and drama.
True or False: Besides tutors, TCHA has no paid staff.
TCHA is led by a committed group of volunteers. Next time you see one of these board members, be sure to say, “Thanks!”
As the ministry grows, we do see the need to hire part-time workers. Keep us in your prayers!
True or False: TCHA has other locations where they offer classes.
But wouldn’t it be great if this were TRUE? Perhaps a day will come when we add classes in Northfield, South Minneapolis, or even Branson, MO. Who wants to help make this happen?
