The CKC is a Colorado Korean Chorus, formed in 2005 by a small group of local choral enthusiasts in the community. Since then, the CKC has established itself as one of Colorado’s long-standing Korean community chorus. Our mission is “ To express and foster the awareness of our cultural and musical heritage in the community through concerts and other performances with our creative choral works ”.
The chorus body is comprised of local volunteer singers under the direction of dedicated artistic director Dr. Taehyun Kim. The CKC singers are mostly Koreans generally from Denver metropolitan area, largely in Arapahoe county. They bring diverse backgrounds to the membership from all walks of life, representing small business owners, artists, teachers, homemakers, pastors, counselors, accountants, doctors, nurses, dentists, engineers, realtors, sales representatives, financial analysts, church choir directors, vocal instructors, and the retirees, who have the same passion in singing together and contributing the cultural and choral presence in the community.
The CKC performs in seasonal concerts and special concerts throughout the year. In 2015, The CKC celebrated its 10th anniversary in a very special concert titled “Arirang”. Through this concert, the CKC has witnessed tremendous growth in choral excellence and has received accolades from the community. In recent years, in addition to outreach performances to the community, the CKC has had various forms of collaboration concerts with other choral groups, presenting to the community and sharing the great musical experiences and bridging the diverse cultures.
