4:00 – 6:30 pm – Kentucky State University Concert Choir, at South Frankfort Presbyterian Church, Frankfort KY, 224 Steele St

South Frankfort Presbyterian Church (SFPC) and Kentucky State University (KSU) invite the community to enjoy the nationally award winning musicians, the KSU Concert Choir, directed by Dr. Keith McCutchen, 4 p.m., Sunday, Dec. 3, in the SFPC sanctuary at 224 Steele St., Frankfort. A special feature of this year’s performance includes the South Frankfort Community Chorus — come youth who have been training with the renowned director, Dr. Keith McCutcheon. The concert, free and open to all, will be followed by a reception with light refreshments in the Fellowship Hall, sponsored by SFPC’s Presbyterian Women.

Keith McCutchen is the director of the Kentucky State University Concert Choir. While the concert choir tours regionally and nationally, these artists also have performed in Canada, the Bahamas, and Germany. The Concert Choir has received multiple awards, including the National Spiritual Competition and the Annual HBCU Choral Festival.

Pianist, composer and conductor Dr. McCutchen directs KSU’s Concert Choir, while also serving as KSU Associate Music Professor. Previously, McCutchen taught at Minnesota’s St. Olaf College, directed the University of Minnesota’s jazz ensembles, and also directed Indiana University’s (IU) African American Choral Ensemble. McCutchen received his doctorate from IU’s School of Music after earning his undergraduate degree at the University of Kentucky.

SFPC’s opportunity to host this talented group resulted from a presentation, in 2016, by KSU Interim President Dr. Aaron Thompson and the leadership of Kiwanis Board member Ed Powe. Speaking to the local Kiwanis meeting, Dr. Thompson launched the “What Can I Do with KSU Campaign.” Powe challenged each member to write down one thing they could do with KSU. This process motivated Kiwanis member/SPFC Worship Chair Carol Banks to contact KSU, inviting the Concert Choir to perform in December 2016. The event, which included a standing room only crowd and a rock-the-walls performance with 3 standing ovations, blossomed into a new partnership.

Both the KSU Concert Choir and SFPC’s membership celebrate this partnership and encourage the community’s support and involvement. For more information about SFPC’s series of musical events, contact SFPC Worship Chair Carol P. Banks, 502-695-1490 mobile, 502-227-0632 land line, or e-mail: Parsonsca2000@gmail.com. For more information about KSU’s Concert Choir, contact Dr. Keith McCutchen, phone (502) 597-6597 or e-mail keith.mccutchens@kysu.edu.
