KSU Concert Chorale

KSU Concert at SFPC on Sunday, December 3, 2017.

Dr. Caroline Gibson, Soprano, accompanied by Dr. Keith McCutchen on the piano with the Kentucky State Concert Choir sang ‘O Holy Night’ like the majesty of heaven. The Kentucky State Concert Choir can flat out perform which was evident from the opening note of Franz Joseph Haydn’s, ‘Achieved Is Thy Glorious Works’. We also clapped to ‘Go Tell It’ and listened to a Ceremony of Carols. And, our own children sang like a group of touring pros. Praise the Lord and God bless the Kentucky State University Music Program.
