Dodge City Community College offers a wide variety of vocal music activities for students - music majors and non-majors alike. Our music courses support the cultural and educational enrichment for both the DCCC campus and the Dodge City community and surrounding areas, while the students enjoy a fun and exciting experience themselves.
Opportunities are available for participation in the vocal music program in the following ensembles:
The DC3 Concert Choir represents students from various academic disciplines across campus and is open to all students. The choir rehearses and performs both sacred and secular music from all style periods - from early music and classical masterpieces, to current popular and musical theater standards.
College Singers, whose members are selected by audition from the Concert Choir, rehearses and performs a wide variety of contemporary music from jazz and music theatre genres, as well as early madrigal music. The group performs both on campus at concerts and at off-campus events throughout the community.
Choral Union is DC3's college and community chorus and is open to all college students and community members, many of whom are former DCCC students themselves. The choir rehearses and performs a broad base of repertoire including traditional classical, oratorio, and operetta music.
DC3 Stampede Show Choir
Set to launch in the Fall of 2012, get ready to move with the DC3 Stampede, the latest exciting offering in the vocal music program! This auditioned show choir ensemble is comprised of members from the DC3 Concert Choir and high school juniors and seniors who are also members of their high school choral ensemble. Performances of popular and show choir music will culminate each year with the Valentine's showcase in February. Auditions will take place in both the spring and fall semesters.
Music Theatre Workshop
The Music Theatre Workshop class is open to all students and community members by audition. The course offers practical acting training, stage movement, and song preparation for music theatre actors and performers in a fun and energetic environment. Scenes from traditional to contemporary musical theatre are utilized in the rehearsals and performances.

Private voice instruction is available to all students, both music majors and non-majors. Lessons are encouraged to develop proper vocal technique and to further students' musical styles and expression.
Vocal music performing arts grants (scholarships) are available to all students who participate in designated vocal activities (ensembles and lessons), regardless of major. Detailed information is available by contacting the Fine Arts office.
