Over the weekend of January 27-29, the Kentucky Regional Menís Chorus was involved with several recording sessions to record music for their new CD that will be released sometime in early 2017.Please check back for information about our newest project!

In Give Us a Song the Chorus presents its second recording project. In 2007 Joseph M. Martin was commissioned to compose an anthem in memory of longtime member and a soloist on our previous recording Singing from the back row, David Lyn Hensley.  "Give Us a Song" is the result of that collaboration and serves as both the title of the CD and the centerpiece of the recording.

Of the fifteen years of its existence Rev. Dr. John T. Opsata has been the Men's Chorus' director for ten. Mr. Brad Herndon began playing the piano at the age of seven and has been the group primary accompanist for eleven years. Rev. Larry Sivis was the Chorusí first accompanist and returns as the arranger and organist on ďAll Hail the Power of Jesusí Name.Ē Mr. Rick Jouett serves as the Chorusí volunteer Business Manager and Pastor Ed Huckleberry is the Regionís Director of Menís Ministries.  As with our first recording, once again, Mr. Bill Johnson of W.H. Johnson Company, recorded and produced this CD. This recording was made February 16-20, 2008 at Crestwood Christian Church (Disciples of Christ) Lexington, Kentucky.

If you are interested in singing with the group or having the Chorus perform in your area, please contact the Christian Church in Kentucky.

All proceeds from the sale of this CD will be used to support the youth outdoor ministries and men's ministries of the Christian Church In Kentucky.
