  • “Carpenters of God,” an original text and choral setting by Vijay Singh, professor of music at Central Washington University;
  • a setting of “Set Me as a Seal,” by Rene Clausen, professor of music at Concordia College in Moorhead, Minnesota;
  • a setting of a portion of Walt Whitman’s poem “A Song of Joys,” titled “A Jubilant Song,” by native Kansas composer John Leavitt.

The CC Singers will perform an arrangement of “When I Fall in Love,” by Kirby Shaw, and an arrangement of the Beatles hit, “In My Life,” by Steve Zegree.
