In addition, Dr. Wyatt’s groups have performed in the Governor’s Carolighting, which is televised statewide; the Columbia Music Festival Association’s production of Tchaikovsky’s Nutcracker at the Township Auditorium; and numerous choral festivals.

The ensemble performs Christmas and spring concerts at the FAC.  CCKC will be accepting new members in January by audition.
