Fun at the 2018 SummerSing


Almost 100 singers, ages 8 to 18,  gathered at Wright State University Creative Arts Center on Saturday, August 4, and Sunday, August 5, for the Second Annual KCC Summer Sing. Their time together was  split between learning new literature with Mr. and Mrs. Jauss, Dr. Tipps, and Mr. Swank, Music Skills and Folk Dancing with Mr. Swank and Mr. Forney, and preparing for the Sunday afternoon Showcase.
