Event Details

First Christian Church is presenting the next program in their summer Music on the Labyrinth series, featuring Ray Killian, folk singer and acoustic guitarist. The program will be held outdoors on the labyrinth on the south side of the church, but will move indoors for inclement weather. Bring a blanket or chair, or just sit on the labyrinth wall.  A free will offering will be taken.

Music has been a catalyst for the understanding of, and reaction to, local and world events. This concert will focus on the plight of children in crises, and the care of the planet on which we all depend. Bring your singing voices as there will be opportunities to participate in this concert on FCC’S labyrinth.

Ray Killian was educated at Westminster Choir College (BS MusEd) and the University of Illinois (MM and EdD-(ABD)). While at Westminster, he sang tenor in the Westminster Choir, which toured extensively and sang on Barber’s “Antony and Cleopatra” which won a Grammy Award. He studied further at the Mozarteum in Salzburg, Austria, and the Classical Music Seminar, also in Austria. Ray taught in Washington DC for twelve years, and as a conductor, his groups were recognized with the DC Mayor Arts Award and the Smithsonian Folk Life Festival, also performing at the Depts. of Justice and State to further LGBT issues. Ray was Admissions Director for the School of Music and also taught conducting at the University of Illinois Urbana-Champaign. He then taught in Arizona for three years (Westside Teacher of the Year/AZ Teacher of the Year nominee) before moving to Colorado. His passion for music and teacher training comes from his belief that music and the arts are necessary components of life, and that music education is essential for our children. Ray recently retired from teaching, but has not retired from performing and guest-lecturing, and is writing a book on Learning Theory and the Arts.
