The Central Kansas Community Choir (CKCC) is recruiting singers for the fall 2023 season. Rehearsals will be held from 7-9 p.m. Monday evenings starting August 28th in the Morrison Chapel in the Fine Arts Building.

Barton Community College sponsors the CKCC and the choir 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 singers high school age and above. Participants must have a choral singing background and be able to attend all rehearsals as the literature will be challenging and rehearsal time is relatively short.

Barton County residents and those in surrounding counties interested in participating can contact Barton Director of Choral Activities Dr. Eric Foley at or (620) 792-9395.

The CKCC will rehearse with the Barton Concert Choir, and the combined choirs will be directed by Foley.

This fall marks the 12th season for this ensemble. It was founded in the spring of 2003 by former director Vern Fryberger. It is a non-denominational mixed chorus. Each singer will be charged a $25 fee to help pay for music and production expenses.
