MISSION STATEMENT
The primary objective of the Choral Music Program at KCKCC is to educate students through the stylistic variety and tonal diversity of the choral genre, based on historical precedent. This objective is achieved by exposing students to music of different nationalities and/or cultures and their commitment to recreate a unique tone quality that identifies with the cultural environment of each composition.
