Grant Recipients

2018 TACA Grant Recipients

Since our establishment in 1967, we have awarded more than $28 million in grants to more than 150 emerging and established nonprofit arts organizations, large and small, throughout Dallas County. We also recruit, train and staff more than 70 volunteers in the community and nationally in researching, evaluating and awarding our grants.

Grantmaking is a critical component of our mission to support artistic excellence and impact in the arts. Through our grant programs we hope to not only strengthen the effectiveness and impact of arts organizations, but to also encourage innovation and risk-taking.

This year, we are thrilled to support the work of 41 outstanding and deserving arts organizations in our community. Each week this year, we will feature one of these organizations here on our website and on Facebook, Instagram and Twitter.

In 1980, 30 men stood on stage and sang at Holy Trinity Catholic Church. Now known as Turtle Creek Chorale (TCC), that group has grown to more than 200 due-paying members who contribute over 100,000 hours annually to rehearsals, performances, and community outreach services.

TCC has provided musical journeys to audiences in Dallas, TX for over 36 years, and annually offers a dynamic mainstage concert series at the Dallas City Performance Hall in the Arts District. TCC also features three smaller ensembles — Chamber Chorus, Camerata, and SoundBytes. Each group delivers a unique performance that highlights the members’ wealth of talent.

While primarily a gay men’s chorus, the Turtle Creek Chorale welcomes all men, and those that identify as male, regardless of sexual orientation.
