Women's Chorale & Wind Orchestra


The Kentucky Baptist Women's Chorale was formed in 1988. The objective and purpose of the group is to encourage personal and professional improvement, Christian fellowship, ministry, outreach, and spiritual growth through music. Women who are active in a Kentucky Baptist church may be members (up to four women from each church), pending approval by the church's minister of music.

The director is Sue Ellen Ballard, from Central Baptist Church in Paris, Ky. Jennifer Bersaglia of Allen Baptist Church in Prestonsburg, Ky., is the accompanist.


The Kentucky Baptist Wind Orchestra is comprised of ministers of music and instrumentalists from Kentucky Baptist churches. This group was organized to promote and model the use of instrumental ensembles in the local church. The ensemble rehearses and performs in conjunction with the Kentucky Baptist Men's and Women's chorales.

A $10 folder deposit is required for new members , or is carried over to the next year for returning members whose music folder was submitted ON TIME at the end of last season.
