Tony Pranaitis is Barbershopper of the Year AGAIN!!!! Thank you, Tony for all the tireless effort you put into the chorus!
CCC sang a patriotic set at a lunch for veterans and their families at Northglenn Community Center on 11th November 2023.
The audience was very appreciative. While we sang there were various pictures of veterans projected on the wall above and behind us, and at one point there was a picture of us singing at the same event last year.
CCC were honored to take part in the annual memorial service at the Westminster Elks Lodge on December 4th. In this service, the Elks remember their members who have passed and light a candle for each one. The emphasis is on not being sad about their loss, rather remember the person in a positive light, reflecting on what they have learned from them and promising to teach others.
We sang 7 songs to complement the occasion:
Auld Lang Syne
God Bless America
These were very well received. In particular, comments were made about how much they enjoyed Taps, which was arranged by our associate director, Jerry Hooper.
CCC sang a half-hour set of patriotic songs 11/11/22 for the Veterans Day lunch at the new Northglenn Recreation Center. Some of us attended the service at the memorial at 11am which was followed by a spaghetti lunch in the community center. After our performance we met with veterans, thanked them for their service, sang with them and listened to stories of their experiences. Several members of CCC have served, including both of our directors.
CCC competed in the Rocky Mountain District chorus competition Saturday October 8th 2022
We sang two songs, 'A Wink And A Smile' and 'Somewhere Over The Rainbow'
We have been rehearsing these songs for several months now - it all seemed to be over in a flash, but we did our best and were proud of our performance.
(results will be posted when they are released)
We particularly want to thank John and Jerry for all the blood, sweat and tears they put into shaping up the two songs
Congratulations to Drew Lubeck on his first time singing in public with the chorus!

CCC travelled to Mount Rushmore to join with the Shrine of Democracy Chorus for the Harmony Happening in the HIlls on August 26th and 27th. Tyler Wigginton coached the combined chorus and the ensemble performed at the Mount Rushmore Auditorium.
On the Friday evening there were hotdogs and a makeshift quartet competition.
