About Us

Our Fall session starts on Monday, September 11, 2017.  If you plan to join us, please pre-register on the registration page.

The choir is directed by Alice Ploss who has been involved with choirs in some capacity since second grade, when she sang her first solo in church.  She has enjoyed directing choirs of all ages and kinds for over 30 years, and has been an accompanist for and a member of numerous singing groups.  While earning her Master’s Degree, she studied conducting at Ithaca College  with Janet Galvan and Lawrence Doebler.  Alice began directing the Trumansburg Community Chorus when it started in the early 2000’s. She has a BM in Music Education from SUNY Fredonia (organ), and a MS in Music Education from Ithaca College (voice).

Alice has taught choral and general music in Trumansburg, and teaches music education/vocal improvisation classes at Ithaca College.  She is the organist and music director at the First Presbyterian Church of Ulysses in Trumansburg. She sings with ephemera, a women’s  improvisation group, and plays percussion and sings with Cielle and All Sounds On.  Her recent (2007-2009) international music experiences include conducting  the Chiba International Singers, accompanying for and vocal directing two productions for the Tokyo International Players, singing in the Tokyo International Singers Chorus and studying Taiko Drumming with Moko Igarashi.

The TCC is made up of youth and adults from the Trumansburg Community. We welcome new members and are looking to grow the chorus. There is no audition to join our ranks, however, a basic knowledge of choral singing and music is helpful.
