Mid-Kentucky Arts at St. Catharine

Putting Talent in the Spotlight

Lights dim as magnificent music, orchestral and vocal, fills the hall. Another Mid-Kentucky Arts performance is underway on the St. Catharine College Campus …

Founded in 1998, Mid-Kentucky Arts at St. Catharine brings the rich pleasures of the arts to the people of the tri-county region. Through a thoughtfully planned schedule of events, students and members of local communities experience a broad range of professional quality performances as well as gain an avenue of personal expression for their own abilities.

From the start, Mid-Kentucky Arts has been a volunteer organization, funded by generous donations from the community. As the organization’s popularity continues to grow, the College’s long-term plans include eventually hiring a director to coordinate a rich array of performances and presentations across a variety of artistic media.

In addition to grand vocal and instrumental performances, past years’ presentations have coupled art exhibitions, dance performances and small theatrical vignettes with musical concerts featuring regional talent.

The Mid-Kentucky Chorus at St. Catharine performs a program of Christmas music at St. Catharine Hall.

Mid-Kentucky Chorus at St. Catharine

A high point of Mid-Kentucky Arts is the Chorus composed of area men and women from all walks of life. Both the professionally trained and those who simply seek an opportunity to sing with others find a musical home within this talented group. The common denominator among members is a love of music and singing. The chorus always welcomes new voices. If you are interested in joining the chorus, donating or helping in other ways, please call Susan Spalding at (859) 336-9232 or Teresa Tedder at (270) 789-9286.
