The Central Kansas Community Choir is recruiting singers for the 2017 spring season. The CKCC strives to provide challenging and quality performances to the residents of central Kansas. Choir membership is open to all choral singers high school age and older. 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.
Located in Great Bend, the CKCC is a non-denominational mixed chorus. Barton Community College Director of Choral Activities Vern Fryberger directs the chorus.
The CKCC was founded in the spring of 2003. Spring 2017 will mark the eighth season for this ensemble as it convenes every other year. Previous seasons have included music from the Handel’s “Messiah,” the Vivaldi “Gloria,” Hayes “Te Deum” the Rutter “Gloria” and a variety of Broadway and traditional American works. This year’s program will include the “Magnificat” by Kevin Memley, a contemporary sacred work for chorus brass quintet and percussion. The concert will also feature some favorite American choral tunes.
The CKCC is sponsored by Barton Community College. There is a $25 fee for each singer which will help defray music and production expenses.
The first rehearsal will be held 7-9 p.m. Jan. 9 with the final concert presented April 4. The choir will hold rehearsals on Monday evenings from 7-9 p.m. Interested singers should attend the first rehearsal on Jan. 9.
