The Festival Choral Society was formed in 2005 and is incorporated as a nonprofit and charitable organization as well as a 501(c)(3) entity in the State of Kansas. It is governed by a Board of Directors that is charged with management of the organization. The board prepares the by-laws of the organization, makes policy decisions, conducts fundraising initiatives and has oversight of the organization’s budget. Members of the board were selected for their interest in music, their support of the goals of the Festival Choral Society, and for their community influence, professional expertise and their ability to encourage the development of the Festival Choral Society’s reputation and standing
in the community and surrounding areas.
Our community choral program is one of very few in the Kansas City area. It provides our choir members and our audiences an opportunity to perform with and hear professional
Kansas City area vocalists, groups and musicians.
At previous concerts, we’ve had the pleasure of performing with well-known vocalists from the Kansas City musical theatre arena and members of the Kansas City Symphony. These are just a couple of examples of the quality we seek for our choir members and our audiences to experience.
