Being a member of the Kimbrough Choir is a unique and wonderful experience. This community choir, comprised of people of a wide range of age groups and backgrounds, provides an enriching environment where, despite everyone’s differences, we can come together to celebrate our common love for music.

Dexter Kimbrough credits his love of music to his mother, Lois Kimbrough, who was a pianist and quartet member at the University of Texas. He studied piano and participated in his high school band in Itta Bena, Mississippi, for six years, and was a member of the Mississippi State band and choir.
Beginning in 1998, Kimbrough enrolled in German classes, and later in The Holocaust at BRTC, instructed by Dr. Jan Ziegler. Financial assistance from Kimbrough and others made possible Ziegler’s dream to provide for student travel to Germany and to the Holocaust Museum in Washington, D.C. In 2004, Ziegler and Kimbrough, together with Joniece Trammel, united in an effort to develop another dream – establishment of a choral music program at BRTC. Through a
generous donation in excess of $50,000 made by Kimbrough, along with support of BRTC President Richard Gaines, the Kimbrough Choir of BRTC was birthed.
