Arts In Prison
A handful of men from Southern Hills have been singing with this choir for several years. They go to rehearsals in the prison one evening a month, and rehearsals for the volunteers in Kansas City on the first Monday evening of each month. They perform 2 concerts each January and 2 each June, in various churches in Kansas City, Lawrence, or Topeka . Those involved find it a rewarding experience. Any men who sing would be welcome to join the group.
A similar program has recently resumed at the Topeka Womens Prison. A few women from SHMC were involved previously, but no one is currently. A retired choral director from Wichita State University is directing the group. They rehearse one night a week. If anyone (male or female) is interested in singing with them, contact the church for more information
