Coffeyville Community College’s Choir Department will host a free choral
festival for area schools on Thursday, January 19 from 8:30am to 4pm.  Participants will
spend the day rehearsing and preparing for a free community concert at 4:30pm in the
Spencer / Rounds Theatre.  Lunch will be provided for participants.  For more information,
contact CCC Choir Director, Markel Porter at [email protected].  
“We are excited to be hosting singers from five area high school choirs (including Field
Kindley and Caney Valley) to participate in a festival where we will learn two full-choir
songs plus one women's piece and one men's piece.  It's a time to come together and
participate in a large choir comprised of approximately seventy-five singers.  We will end
the day presenting the songs we have learned in a concert for parents, campus personnel,
and the public. The concert will last approximately 25 minutes,” said Markel Porter,
Director of Choir.
