Three One-Day Events, sponsored by

The Northern Kentucky Community Chorus

2023-2024

 

Singing is something that everyone can do. It helps us express ourselves. We learn about composers and music from a wide range of countries and time periods. We learn about breathing and vocal production. Singing in choirs creates a cultural community that gives us belonging and joy. Everyone should sing in a choir — at school, church, temple, or a community choir. There is a place for everyone and we want you to Come and Sing!

 

Our Come and Sing events are open to singers of all ages from 9th grade through adults and will be held at Lakeside Presbyterian Church, 2690 Dixie Highway, Lakeside Park, KY. To register for any of these events, please fill out the form on NKCC’s website: nkychorus.org

We are thrilled to offer three events this season with outstanding conductors:
