Are internships with directors available for college-age students? 

KCC is a great place to learn about choral directing. All college students currently working to complete a music degree are welcome to observe at any rehearsal. Contact a director or Mrs. Schneider to schedule a time.

How many performances do the choirs have every year?

It depends on the choir but it can be as many as 7-10 performances a year. 

Do singers learn any music theory in addition to vocal technique?

All singers in every choir take a Musicianship class each week in addition to their regular rehearsal. Our Musicianship instructors are trained in Kodaly as well as choral methods. Musicianship classes are part of your child's yearly tuition.

Does KCC accept students who are homeschooled? 

Yes! Many of the singers in each choir are homeschooled. KCC is a great way to socialize and learn music skills at the same time.

Do you travel?

We travel nationally as a group every year. We hope to begin traveling internationally again in the future.

When do you practice and where?

Rehearsals are on Tuesday evenings at Wright State University.

When are the next auditions?

We have scheduled auditions each year in June, August and January.  Depending on circumstances, we can alternatively schedule an appointment with the appropriate director.

Girls wear long dresses (or optional Palazzo pants and top for Concert Choir). They are ordered through KCC and cost $100. We maintain a list of sellers of gently worn dresses.
