WHO WE ARE ... WHAT WE DO ...
Tiverton Junior Operatic Club was formed in 1978 by members of TAOS to encourage youngsters to enjoy music and drama.
TJOC meets on Thursdays. There is an annual subscription of £40 to belong to the club, however this is only payable if you take part in the major musical production in February.
Sadly, subscriptions do not cover the production costs of the annual show, but they do help towards other costs. Our annual production requires substantial funding which we raise in various ways which includes sponsors and advertising in the annual souvenir show programme by local businesses. Applying for youth grants and a programme of relentless fund-raising are also valuable sources of funding We do strive to make the show try and cover itself through ticket sales ... but with productions bigger and more complex this is a task which has become increasingly more difficult in latter years!
TJOC has a voluntary committee which consists of 14 elected members made up of 10 adults and 4 junior members over the age of 14. The club still believes in and follows its original conception of encouraging young people to explore and enjoy the artistic and cultural opportunities within the town and beyond.
TJOC meet every Thursday ... although on the run up to the main production in February and the Summer Concert season, Sundays may also be necessary to perfect the performance.
