Performing Arts Opportunities
Through the Arts and Humanities division, students and community members may participate in LCCC’s theater, orchestra, concert band or choral performance groups. It is a wonderful way to bring students and community members together and it brings about extraordinary efforts in the arts. Vocal music opportunities are plentiful. The Civic Chorale is made up of students, community members, experienced vocalists and those who sing just for the enjoyment of it. The Civic Chorale performs representative choral works of all periods. There are no fees or auditions required to participate. The Civic Orchestra presents representative orchestral works of all periods. The Civic Band performs a wide range of music of various periods for string, brass and woodwind combinations. Participation in theatre requires auditions for acting roles, but positions in all sorts of technical personnel capacities are also available.
