Founded in 2018 by James Brown-Kinsella ‘19 and Cat Sweeney ‘20, the Trenton Youth Singers is a new youth choir serving predominantly middle school students in Trenton Public Schools. TYS members sing an eclectic mix of repertoire while building their musicianship skills and vocal strength. The leadership team includes Stephanie Tubiolo, Gabriel Crouch, and undergraduate Teaching Artists from choirs across Princeton University.
HOW TO JOIN
Participation in TYS is completely free of charge, and we welcome singers of all levels of experience. If you or your child would like to join, write to Stephanie Tubiolo at firstname.lastname@example.org for more information. Scroll down to see the flyer for more information.
ABOUT THE TEACHING ARTISTS
Kirsten Keels is a Junior from Arkansas (Woooo Pig!), majoring in Music and pursuing certificates in Ethnography and East Asian studies. She spends most of her time in Woolworth Music Building, and when she’s not there, you can catch her rehearsing with the Chapel Choir or the Princeton Roaring 20. When she’s not rehearsing, you can catch her binging K-Dramas and cartoons or taking a good ol' snooze.
Thomas Jankovic is a senior in the German department though by distribution of time he might as well be majoring in a capella. He sings with the Nassoons acapella group, the Decem consort choir, the Glee Club, and occasionally the Chamber Choir, and he used to play French horn in the Princeton University Orchestra. He tutors on weekends and enjoys working at Princeton Climate Analytics, and after college he wants to work within the renewable energy industry. His favorite part of working with the Trenton Youth Singers is just getting to hang out with his favorite people on the weekends.
Cat Sweeney is a senior from Long Island, New York majoring in sociology with certificates in musical performance and ethnographic studies. On campus, she is a part of the Chamber Choir, Decem, and vice president of the Girl Up Club which advocates for education in developing countries. She is very passionate about music outreach and has worked in arts education departments for Opera America, the Cultural Center of the Philippines, and for the Bayimba Cultural Foundation in Uganda this summer. When she is not singing, she can be found sleeping, binge-watching Netflix, or listening to classic rock.
