The Music Department hosted guest choral director Dr. Bradley Vogel for the annual Chaney Music Symposium, held Monday, Feb. 24th at the MacFree Church. The choir for the event consisted of CCCK’s Una Voce concert choir, Wellington High School Crusader Singers, and the Flint Hills Christian School choir, which brought the mass choir to 32 vocalists. Dr. Vogel held rehearsals throughout the afternoon and the guests ate supper with the CCCK college students in the cafeteria before the performance. Individual choirs performed individual works followed by the entire mass choir, which performed Come Thou Fount of Every Blessing and Holy, Holy, Holy, both arranged by Dr. Vogel.
Una Voce has been invited by Dr. Bradley Vogel to sing at Carnegie Hall under the direction of Dr. Vogel in May of 2021. The choir will be performing Dan Forrest’s Requiem for the Living in New York City, in combination with many other choirs from around the country.
The endowed Chaney Music Symposium was established in 2003 in memory of Edris (ca’23) and Albert (c’24) Chaney, who were both devoted to the college and had a love for the Lord. Next year’s Chaney Music Symposium will be held Monday, Oct. 19th, 2020, which will feature Mr. Sam Rotman, a Christian classical pianist, who will talk during convocation to the student body and perform a piano recital of the music of Beethoven.
