The Central Kansas Community Choir (CKCC) is recruiting singers for the spring 2021 season. Rehearsals will be held from 7-9 p.m. Monday evenings starting Jan. 25. The concert will be held April 11. Barton County residents and those in surrounding counties interested in participating must contact Angel Morgan at (620) 792-9391 or [email protected].
This spring, the Community Choir will rehearse with the Barton Concert Choir and the combined choirs will be under the direction of the new Director of Choral Activities Dr. Eric Foley.
The CKCC is sponsored by Barton Community College and strives to provide challenging performances of quality literature for the enjoyment of the residents of the Central Kansas area. Choir membership is open to all choral singers high school age and above. Participants must have some choral singing background and be able to attend all rehearsals as the choral literature will be challenging and rehearsal time is relatively short.
Spring of 2021 marks the 10th season for this ensemble as it convenes every other year. It was founded in the spring of 2003 by former director Vern Fryberger. Located in Great Bend, it is a non-denominational mixed chorus. There is a $25 fee for each singer which will help defray music and production expenses.
