The 2017 Holiday season is over, and all the Choirs were busy adding to the Christmas Spirit throughout the area. The Chorus was featured at the Mayor’s Tree Lighting on December 1 and the Rosewood Arts Centre “Christmas at Rosewood” on December 2. The Chorale sang for Angel Night at Calvary Cemetery on November 30 and with the Bach Society of Dayton on December 3 at the Kettering Seventh Day Adventist Church. Members of the Concert Choir sang for the DPAA’s production of “The Nutcracker” at the Schuster Center, “Christmas on Campus” at the University of Dayton, and the Morning Show on Fox 45 News on December 22. The Homeschool Choir represented KCC at smaller venues around town.
The highlight of the season, though, was the CELEBRATE! Holiday Concert on December 10 at the Kettering Seventh Day Adventist Church. There were two identical concerts at 2:00 and 4:00 featuring the Chorus, Chorale, Concert Choir and Cappella groups. Admission was free, but those attending were asked to bring a gift of canned goods for local food pantries.
