The Central Kansas Community Choir (CKCC) will perform its holiday concert featuring uplifting vocal selections at 3 p.m. Dec. 3 at the First Presbyterian Church 2400 Washington St., in Great Bend.

Director of Choral Activities Dr. Eric Foley said the music for this concert will be a diverse mix of genres and styles from across the ages.

“The music in this show will definitely get our attendees in the mood for the holidays,” he said. “Some selections may be new to our audience, but many will be favorites of the holiday season. I think it will be an enjoyable concert to see and hear for all that come and join us.”

The CKCC is a non-denominational mixed chorus 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 high school-age singers and above. It was founded in the spring of 2003 by former director Vern Fryberger.
