Combining over 50 years of award winning and nationally-recognized excellence in choral music education and artistry, Gulf Coast Youth Choirs and Tampa Bay Children’s Chorus are coming together to begin a new era of choral experiences for the young singers of Tampa Bay!

Lumina Youth Choirs officially debuts on July 1, 2015 as the foremost choral music education organization in the Tampa Bay area for young men and women ages 6 – 18.

Building on the unsurpassed legacy of the GCYC and TBCC organizations, Lumina offers developmentally sequenced choirs based on age, musical proficiency and vocal development, optimizing this learning experience for each child while building community among our students.

During the last 25 years TBCC has given many children in the Tampa Bay area opportunities to sing with professional orchestras, perform in major choral festivals, and share their music in concerts around the world. We are grateful to the support of our community, which has made it possible for us to offer these experiences to our young people!
