Members of the community who love to sing have an opportunity to join a group that will perform in the community.

Rehearsals for the Kansas City Kansas Community College Community Chamber Choir will begin at 7 p.m. Sept. 8 in the choir room, Room 2170 of the Humanities Building, on the KCKCC campus, 7250 State Ave.

Open to any singer who is at least in high school in Wyandotte, Johnson or Leavenworth counties and who has a desire to sing in a large ensemble, the repertoire of the Community Chamber Choir includes everything from major works to songs from all periods of music. The main focus will be to perform in two major concerts each semester with the KCKCC Chamber Choir. Experience in choral singing is recommended, but not required.

The choir is offered through Community Education, and the cost is $30. It can also be taken for academic credit. Those interested may enroll in person at the Community Education Building, which is on the east side of the main KCKCC campus; by phone at 913-288-7660 or on-line at Go to “Programs” on the KCKCC home page and click “Continuing Education Schedule.” The class is listed under Community Education.
