Membership

The Choir is meant to be a positive learning experience for the singers, one that they will carry with them throughout their lifetime. The members of the Choir should learn the meaning of “commitment” and “responsibility.” They should feel a sense of pride at being in this very special Choir and not take their membership lightly. Enrollment in KCC is for the season which begins in September and generally concludes with the Spring Concert. Each member is expected to remain active and committed to the program for the entire term. These young people will be sharing some wonderful times together both musically and socially.
